Represents fill formatting for a shape. A shape can have a solid, gradient, texture, pattern, picture, or semi-transparent fill.

Many of the properties of the FillFormat object are read-only. To set one of these properties, you have to apply the corresponding method.

Use the Fill property to return a FillFormat object. The following example adds a rectangle to myDocument and then sets the gradient and color for the rectangle's fill.

Set myDocument = ActivePresentation.Slides(1)

With myDocument.Shapes _

        .AddShape(msoShapeRectangle, 90, 90, 90, 80).Fill

    .ForeColor.RGB = RGB(0, 128, 128)

    .OneColorGradient msoGradientHorizontal, 1, 1

End With
