XAML Values

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Media.GradientStopCollection
A collection of the GradientStop objects associated with the brush, each of which specifies a color and an offset along the brush's gradient axis. The default is an empty GradientStopCollection.

Dependency property identifier field: GradientStopsProperty

The XAML syntax for GradientStops is an example of an implicit collection syntax, where you can omit the GradientStopCollection object element, as well as the brushobject.GradientStops property element. Instead, you generally include one or more GradientStop object elements as child elements of a practical GradientBrush. For more information about XAML implicit collection syntax, see XAML for Windows Phone 8. (Explicitly including a GradientStopCollection object element is permissible XAML syntax, and might be useful if you intend to name the collection in XAML and manipulate its contents later.)

Generally a GradientStopCollection contains a minimum of two gradient stops.
