RadialGradientBrush.RadiusY Property

Gets or sets the vertical radius of the outermost circle of a radial gradient.

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

public double RadiusY { get; set; }
/** @property */
public double get_RadiusY ()

/** @property */
public void set_RadiusY (double value)

public function get RadiusY () : double

public function set RadiusY (value : double)

<object RadiusY="double" .../>

Property Value

The vertical radius of the outermost circle of a radial gradient. The default is 0.5.

This example shows how to use the RadialGradientBrush class to paint an area with a radial gradient.

The following example uses a RadialGradientBrush to paint a rectangle with a radial gradient that transitions from yellow to red to blue to lime green.
