Explore examples of SolidColor, Gradient, Image, and Visual Brush in Microsoft Visual Studio's Windows Presentation Foundation. This video also contains an example of the tile properties of the Tile Brush.
- [Instructor] I'll show a few examples…of the types of brushes you can use in WPF.…I'll be using this MainWindow.xaml file,…and I'll take a look briefly at the UI.…So I've got these different elements on the screen,…for instance, I've got this grid,…and I'm setting its Background property.…The Background property is a brushable property,…so I've set that here, and I'll manipulate it in code…by clicking at these different buttons.…So, get the background.…I've also got this, which is called the border.…So there's a border that's around this image,…and I'm setting its BorderBrush property.…
Then I have this section of the UI,…which is called the header grid.…It's another Grid,…and I'll be changing its Background property.…And then finally, I have these ellipses,…in this area of the screen,…and I'll be changing the Fill property,…that's also another brushable property.…The way this works,…is each of these buttons applies a different brush,…so take this first button and click on it,…and we'll apply a solid color brush to parts of the UI.…
