Use this class to describe the colors in a LinearGradientBrush or RadialGradientBrush.

Note that this class does not provide an opacity property; to make a GradientStop semi-transparent, set its GradientStop.Color property with a transparent Color.

The following example creates a linear gradient with four colors and uses it to paint a Rectangle.

The following illustration shows the results of the preceding code, with the highlighted gradient stops.


<StackPanel>
  <!-- This rectangle is painted with a diagonal linear gradient. -->
  <Rectangle Width="200" Height="100">
    <Rectangle.Fill>
      <LinearGradientBrush StartPoint="0,0" EndPoint="1,1">
        <GradientStop Color="Yellow" Offset="0.0" />
        <GradientStop Color="Red" Offset="0.25" />
        <GradientStop Color="Blue" Offset="0.75" />
        <GradientStop Color="LimeGreen" Offset="1.0" />
      </LinearGradientBrush>
    </Rectangle.Fill>
  </Rectangle>
</StackPanel>
