Panel.Background Property

Gets or sets a Brush that is used to fill the area between the borders of a Panel.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Controls
Assembly:  PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)
public Brush Background { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Media.Brush
A Brush. This default value is null.

Panel elements do not receive mouse or stylus events if a Background is not defined. If you need to handle mouse or stylus events but do not want a background for your Panel, use Transparent.

The following example sets the Background of a Grid to a RadialGradientBrush.

<Grid>
  <Grid.Background>
    <RadialGradientBrush 
        GradientOrigin="0.5,0.5" 
        Center="0.5,0.5" RadiusX="0.5" RadiusY="0.5">
      <RadialGradientBrush.GradientStops>
        <GradientStop Color="Yellow" Offset="0" />
        <GradientStop Color="Red" Offset="0.25" />
        <GradientStop Color="Blue" Offset="0.75" />
        <GradientStop Color="Green" Offset="1" />
      </RadialGradientBrush.GradientStops>
    </RadialGradientBrush>
  </Grid.Background>
</Grid>
