Namespace:   System.Windows.Media
Assembly:  PresentationCore (in PresentationCore.dll)

public enum GradientSpreadMethod

Member nameDescription
Pad

Default value. The color values at the ends of the gradient vector fill the remaining space.

Reflect

The gradient is repeated in the reverse direction until the space is filled.

Repeat

The gradient is repeated in the original direction until the space is filled.

The following illustration shows the available spread methods and their effect on LinearGradientBrush and RadialGradientBrush. The red line indicates the gradient space. A LinearGradientBrush defines its gradient space with its StartPoint and EndPoint properties. A RadialGradientBrush defines its gradient space with its Center, RadiusX, and RadiusY properties.
