FillFormat Object (Word)

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.

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.
