Add or remove a gradient stop

Gradient stops define the colors that appear in a gradient brush.

  1. Under Brushes in the Properties panel, click the Gradient brush Cc294582.91fb0c61-7b3b-4ae7-8a59-760e625e3bd7(en-us,Expression.10).png tab, and then click either Linear gradient Cc294582.209508b1-adaa-4293-8d02-23cade0c599e(en-us,Expression.10).png brush or Radial gradient Cc294582.2b3b2e7c-204f-4f66-9c1c-540698186242(en-us,Expression.10).png brush.

  2. Click anywhere on the gradient slider to insert your gradient stop Cc294582.d45e017e-3123-4fc1-9d99-e87b4e3e2202(en-us,Expression.10).png.

  3. Repeat these steps to add more gradient stops. You can also move a gradient stop by dragging the gradient stop to the position you want.

  1. Under Brushes in the Properties panel, click the Gradient brush Cc294582.91fb0c61-7b3b-4ae7-8a59-760e625e3bd7(en-us,Expression.10).png tab, and then click either Linear gradient Cc294582.209508b1-adaa-4293-8d02-23cade0c599e(en-us,Expression.10).png brush or Radial gradient Cc294582.2b3b2e7c-204f-4f66-9c1c-540698186242(en-us,Expression.10).png brush.

  2. Next to the gradient slider, click the Gradient eyedropper Cc294582.2ab2d2fb-3478-4b33-87fb-3cdeb9df4d52(en-us,Expression.10).png. The pointer changes to the eyedropper Cc294582.02163053-dad9-464e-b6e0-cea4692bea87(en-us,Expression.10).png.

  3. Using the mouse pointer, drag a line anywhere inside the Microsoft Expression Blend application window. When you release the mouse button, the colors that you dragged across are applied as gradient colors to the brush.

  • Under Brushes in the Properties panel, drag the gradient stop Cc294582.d45e017e-3123-4fc1-9d99-e87b4e3e2202(en-us,Expression.10).png that you want to remove off the bottom of the gradient slider. (Dragging off the sides or top of a gradient slider will not remove a gradient stop.)

Cc294582.alert_note(en-us,Expression.10).gifNote:

Two gradient stops will always be present on the gradient slider for any gradient brush.

You cannot select multiple gradient stops. You can work with only one stop at a time.
