<object RadiusX="double" .../>

Property Value

Type: System.Double
The horizontal radius of the outermost circle of the 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.

The following illustration shows the gradient from the preceding example. The gradient's stops have been highlighted.

NoteNote

The examples in this topic use the default coordinate system for setting control points. The default coordinate system is relative to a bounding box: 0 indicates 0 percent of the bounding box, and 1 indicates 100 percent of the bounding box. You can change this coordinate system by setting the MappingMode property to the value Absolute. An absolute coordinate system is not relative to a bounding box. Values are interpreted directly in local space.

For additional RadialGradientBrush examples, see the Brushes Sample. For more information about gradients and other types of brushes, see Painting with Solid Colors and Gradients Overview.
