GradientBrush.MappingMode Property

Gets or sets a BrushMappingMode enumeration value that specifies whether the positioning coordinates of the gradient brush are absolute or relative to the output area.

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

public BrushMappingMode MappingMode { get; set; }
<gradientBrush MappingMode="Absolute"/>
<gradientBrush MappingMode="RelativeToBoundingBox"/>

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Media.BrushMappingMode
A BrushMappingMode value that specifies how to interpret the gradient brush's positioning coordinates. The default is BrushMappingMode.RelativeToBoundingBox.

Dependency property identifier field: MappingModeProperty

A value of Absolute indicates the gradient brush's coordinates are expressed in pixels. A value of BrushMappingMode.RelativeToBoundingBox indicates that the gradient brush's coordinates are expressed as a logical factor between 0 and 1.

The MappingMode of a LinearGradientBrush or RadialGradientBrush does not influence how the Offset values are interpreted. Regardless of mapping mode, the offset is always interpreted as a factor between 0 and 1 along the vector that defines the gradient.
