fill (Shape Fill Properties)

This element specifies how the path should be filled if something beyond a solid color fill is desired.  The attributes of the fill element can be used to describe a powerful set of image- or gradient-based fill patterns.   Extensions to the VML fill definition are encoded as sub-elements of fill.

Attributes

Description

alignshape (Align Image With Shape)

Specifies whether an image aligns with the shape. Default is true.

[Example: The image displayed in the shape is not rotated even though the shape is rotated 30 degrees:

<v:shape coordorigin="0,0"
  coordsize="200,200"
  style="top:1;left:1;width:50;
  height:50;rotation:30"
  path="m  1,200, 200,200, 200,1 x e">
  <v:fill alignshape="false" type="frame"
    src="myimage.gif">
  </v:fill>
</v:shape>

Applied to a simple square the fill looks like this:

end example]

The possible values for this attribute are defined by the ST_TrueFalse simple type (§15.1.2.5).

althref (Alternate Image Reference Location)

Namespace: urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office

Defines an alternate reference for an image in Macintosh PICT format.

[Example:

<v:fill … althref="myimage.pcz" … >
</v:fill>

end example]

The possible values for this attribute are defined by the W3C XML Schema string datatype.

angle (Gradient Angle)

Specifies the direction of a gradient. The vector of a gradient is perpendicular to the vector of the blend direction from one color to another. The default value is zero degrees, which is a horizontal vector from left to right. Positive angles rotate the gradient in a counter-clockwise direction.

[Example: The fill is composed of a 45-degree gradient of two colors. Blue is in the top left corner and red is in the bottom right corner.

<v:fill type="gradient" color="red"
  color2="blue" angle="45">
</v:fill>

end example]

The possible values for this attribute are defined by the W3C XML Schema decimal datatype.

aspect (Image Aspect Ratio)

Specifies how the fill image aspect ratio is preserved. Default is ignore. Allowed values are:

  • ignore - Ignore aspect ratio.

  • atleast - At least as large as defined by the size attribute.

  • atmost - No larger than that defined by the size attribute.

In each case, the size attribute is adjusted to preserve the aspect ratio of the image.

[Example: The image that makes up the fill is no larger than 20 points by 20 points, limiting the size of the tiles inside the shape.

<v:fill type="tile" aspect="atmost"
  size="20pt,20pt" src="myimage.gif">
</v:fill>

end example]

The possible values for this attribute are defined by the ST_ImageAspect simple type (§14.1.3.5).

color (Primary Color)

Specifies the main fill color; functions the same as the fillcolor attribute of the shape element (§14.1.2.19). This attribute overrides the shape's fillcolor. Default is white. Colors are typically specified as either a named color, such as red, or six hexadecimal digits representing the red, green and blue values of the color, such as #00FF30. Full details are specified in the simple type description.

[Example: The shape is blue:

<v:shape … fillcolor="red" … >
  <v:fill color="blue"/>
</v:shape>

end example]

The possible values for this attribute are defined by the ST_ColorType simple type (§15.1.2.3).

color2 (Secondary Color)

Specifies the secondary fill color, used when a fill type is a pattern or a gradient. Default is white. Colors are typically specified as either a named color, such as red, or six hexadecimal digits representing the red, green and blue values of the color, such as #00FF30. Full details are specified in the simple type description.

[Example: The shape is filled with a horizontal gradient with red at the bottom and blue on top:

<v:fill type="gradient" 
  color="red" color2="blue">
</v:fill>

end example]

The possible values for this attribute are defined by the ST_ColorType simple type (§15.1.2.3).

colors (Intermediate Colors)

Specifies an array of comma-separated percentage-color pairs that define intermediate colors and their positions in a gradient fill. The primary color, specified either by the fillcolor attribute of the shape element (§14.1.2.19) or the color attribute of the fill element (§14.1.2.5), is used at the 0% endpoint. The secondary color, specified by the color2 attribute of the fill element (§14.1.2.5), is used at the 100% endpoint. The numeric values can also be specified in 1/65536-ths if a trailing "f" is supplied. [Example: For example, a value of "52429f" represents 52429/65536 or 0.8. end example]

[Example: The shape is filled with a horizontal gradient colored, from bottom to top, red, yellow, green, blue:

<v:fill type="gradient" 
  color="red" color2="blue"
  colors="30% yellow,70% green">
</v:fill>

end example]

The possible values for this attribute are defined by the W3C XML Schema string datatype.

detectmouseclick (Detect Mouse Click)

Namespace: urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office

Specifies whether a mouse click is detected on the fill of a shape.

The possible values for this attribute are defined by the ST_TrueFalse simple type (§15.1.2.5).

focus (Gradient Center)

Specifies the center starting position of a gradient. Values range from 100% to -100%. Default is 0.

A value of 100% or -100% reverses the direction of the gradient (in effect swapping color and color2). A value of 50% changes the gradient so that color is at both ends and color2 is in the middle. A value of -50% changes the gradient so that color2 is at both ends and color is in the middle.

[Example: The shape is filled with a horizontal gradient with red at both ends and blue in the middle:

<v:fill type="gradient" 
  color="red" color2="blue"
  focus="50%">
</v:fill>

end example]

The possible values for this attribute are defined by the W3C XML Schema string datatype.

focusposition (Radial Gradient Center)

Specifies the position of the center rectangle of a radial gradient. The vector is a fraction of the width and height of the shape. The first is a percentage of the fill to the left edge; the second is a percentage of the fill to the top. Default is 0,0. To position a radial fill at the center of a shape, use a value of 50%,50%.

[Example: The shape is filled with a rectangular gradient positioned in the top-left quadrant of the shape. The interior of the gradient is blue and the exterior is red:

<v:fill type="gradientradial" 
  color="red" color2="blue"
  focusposition="25%,25%">
</v:fill>

end example]

The possible values for this attribute are defined by the W3C XML Schema string datatype.

focussize (Radial Gradient Size)

Specifies the size of the center rectangle of a radial gradient. The vector is a fraction of the width and height of the shape. The first is a percentage of the fill to the right edge; the second is a percentage of the fill to the bottom. Default is 0,0.

A focussize value of 100%,100% and a focusposition of 0,0 makes color2 dominate the gradient completely. Small values of around 10%,10% are recommended for balanced gradients.

[Example: The shape is filled with a rectangular gradient positioned in the top-left quadrant of the shape. The interior of the gradient is blue and the exterior is red. The red portion is wider on the bottom and right sides of the blue region. The pure blue region is 25% the width and 25% the height of the shape:

<v:fill type="gradientradial" 
  color="red" color2="blue"
  focussize="25%,25%"
  focusposition="25%,25%">
</v:fill>

end example]
