GradientBrush.ColorInterpolationMode Property

Gets or sets a ColorInterpolationMode enumeration that specifies how the gradient's colors are interpolated.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Media
Assembly:  PresentationCore (in PresentationCore.dll)
XMLNS for XAML: http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation, http://schemas.microsoft.com/netfx/2007/xaml/presentation

public ColorInterpolationMode ColorInterpolationMode { get; set; }
<object ColorInterpolationMode="ColorInterpolationMode" .../>

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Media.ColorInterpolationMode
Specifies how the colors in a gradient are interpolated. The default is ColorInterpolationMode.SRgbLinearInterpolation.

Identifier field

ColorInterpolationModeProperty

Metadata properties set to true

None

The following example shows two similar gradients that have different modes of color interpolation, which causes the interpolation to happen in different color spaces.
