GradientDegree Property

Returns the gradient degree of the specified one-color shaded fill as a floating-point value from 0.0 (dark) through 1.0 (light). Read-only Single.

This property is read-only. Use the OneColorGradient method to set the gradient degree for the fill.


expression Required. An expression that returns one of the objects in the Applies To list.

This example sets the chart's fill format so that its gradient degree is at least 0.3.

With myChart.ChartArea.Fill 
 If .Type = msoFillGradient Then 
 If .GradientColorType = msoGradientOneColor Then 
 If .GradientDegree < 0.3 Then 
 .OneColorGradient .GradientStyle, _ 
 .GradientVariant, 0.3 
 End If 
 End If 
 End If
