Contains a collection of GradientStop objects.

Gradients are a smooth transition from one color state to another. The endpoints of these sections are called stops.

The following example creates three color gradient stops in Microsoft PowerPoint.

Sub gradients() 
 Set myDocument = ActivePresentation.Slides(1) 
 Set GradientShapeFill = myDocument.Shapes.AddShape(msoShapeRectangle, 90, 90, 90, 80).Fill 
 With GradientShapeFill 
 .ForeColor.RGB = RGB(0, 128, 128) 
 .OneColorGradient msoGradientHorizontal, 1, 1 
 .GradientStops.Insert RGB(255, 0, 0), 0.25 
 .GradientStops.Insert RGB(0, 255, 0), 0.5 
 .GradientStops.Insert RGB(0, 0, 255), 0.75 
 End With 
End Sub
