Learn about the similarities and differences between the RadialGradientBrush and LinearGradientBrush—such as painted area rules during creation of circular and elliptical rings of color.
- [Instructor] Use the radial gradient brush…when you want to have rings of color,…as opposed to vertical or horizontal bands of color.…The radial gradient brush is similar to…the linear gradient brush;…it has the concept of gradient bands,…here let me show you.…This ellipse has linear gradient brush,…that currently has five bands,…and this rectangle has a linear gradient brush…that has two bands.…I'll convert this first brush to a radial gradient brush…by clicking on this radial gradient button.…Now you see I have a center point,…and the bands radiate out from the center point…towards the edge.…
I'll do the same thing with the rectangle.…Now I have a single yellow band in the center,…and I have a blue color around the outside edge,…and the interpolated colors in this area.…One nice feature in Visual Studio…is that if you select this ellipse…and you decide to look at some of these other brushes,…like turn off the brush or switch to a solid color brush,…when you return to the gradient brush,…Visual Studio remembers all of your…
