FillFormat Object

Office 2007
Represents fill formatting for a shape. A shape can have a solid, gradient, texture, pattern, picture, or semi-transparent fill.


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

Visual Basic for Applications
With ActiveDocument.Shapes _
        .AddShape(msoShapeRectangle, 90, 90, 90, 80).Fill
    .ForeColor.RGB = RGB(0, 128, 128)
    .OneColorGradient msoGradientHorizontal, 1, 1
End With

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