GradientBrush.MappingMode Property

Gets or sets a BrushMappingMode enumeration that specifies whether the gradient brush's positioning coordinates are absolute or relative to the output area.

Namespace: System.Windows.Media
Assembly: PresentationCore (in presentationcore.dll)
XML Namespace:  http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation

public BrushMappingMode MappingMode { get; set; }
/** @property */
public BrushMappingMode get_MappingMode ()

/** @property */
public void set_MappingMode (BrushMappingMode value)

public function get MappingMode () : BrushMappingMode

public function set MappingMode (value : BrushMappingMode)

<object MappingMode="BrushMappingMode" .../>

Property Value

A BrushMappingMode value that specifies how the gradient brush's positioning coordinates are interpreted. The default value is RelativeToBoundingBox.

Identifier field

MappingModeProperty

Metadata properties set to true

None

A value of Absolute indicates the gradient brush's coordinates are expressed using device independent pixels.

The following example shows how to use the MappingMode property to specify what coordinate system to use for the StartPoint and EndPoint of the gradient.

        <!-- The MappingMode property is set to "Absolute" which specifies that the coordinate 
             system used for the StartPoint and EndPoint properties is not relative to the
