Reflect The gradient is repeated in the reverse direction until the space is filled.
Repeat The gradient is repeated in the original direction until the space is filled.

Remarks

The following illustration shows the available spread methods and their effect on LinearGradientBrush and RadialGradientBrush. The red line indicates the gradient space. A LinearGradientBrush defines its gradient space with its StartPoint and EndPoint properties. A RadialGradientBrush defines its gradient space with its Center, RadiusX, and RadiusY properties.
