Note: Some things to consider when working with LinearGradient objects

  • Attempting to access a Gradient property of an Interior object that does not have an existing gradient fill will result in a Run Time Error. Be aware of the Pattern property before accessing the Gradient property.
  • If Pattern is changed from a gradient type to a non-gradient type, the LinearGradient object will populate with default values.
