Examples

The following example is intended to be used in a Windows Forms environment. It demonstrates how to use the Blend class in conjunction with the LinearGradientBrush class to draw an ellipse to screen that has its colors blended. The ellipse is blue on the left, blends to red in the center, and blends back to blue on the right. This is accomplished through the settings in the myFactors and myPositions arrays used in the Factors and Positions properties. Note that the Blend property of the LinearGradientBrush object named lgBrush2 must be made equal to the Blend object myBlend.

public:
   void BlendConstExample( PaintEventArgs^ e )
   {
      //Draw ellipse using Blend.
      Point startPoint2 = Point(20,110);
      Point endPoint2 = Point(140,110);
      array<Single>^myFactors = {.2f,.4f,.8f,.8f,.4f,.2f};
      array<Single>^myPositions = {0.0f,.2f,.4f,.6f,.8f,1.0f};
      Blend^ myBlend = gcnew Blend;
      myBlend->Factors = myFactors;
      myBlend->Positions = myPositions;
      LinearGradientBrush^ lgBrush2 =
            gcnew LinearGradientBrush( startPoint2,endPoint2,Color::Blue,Color::Red );
      lgBrush2->Blend = myBlend;
      Rectangle ellipseRect2 = Rectangle(20,110,120,80);
      e->Graphics->FillEllipse( lgBrush2, ellipseRect2 );

      // End example.
   }
public void BlendConstExample(PaintEventArgs e)
{
             
    //Draw ellipse using Blend.
    Point startPoint2 = new Point(20, 110);
    Point endPoint2 = new Point(140, 110);
    float[] myFactors = {.2f,.4f,.8f,.8f,.4f,.2f};
    float[] myPositions = {0.0f,.2f,.4f,.6f,.8f,1.0f};
    Blend myBlend = new Blend();
    myBlend.Factors = myFactors;
    myBlend.Positions = myPositions;
    LinearGradientBrush lgBrush2 = new LinearGradientBrush(
        startPoint2,
        endPoint2,
        Color.Blue,
        Color.Red);
    lgBrush2.Blend = myBlend;
    Rectangle ellipseRect2 = new Rectangle(20, 110, 120, 80);
    e.Graphics.FillEllipse(lgBrush2, ellipseRect2);
             
    // End example.
}
Public Sub BlendConstExample(ByVal e As PaintEventArgs)

    ' Draw ellipse using Blend.
    Dim startPoint2 As New Point(20, 110)
    Dim endPoint2 As New Point(140, 110)
    Dim myFactors As Single() = {0.2F, 0.4F, 0.8F, 0.8F, 0.4F, 0.2F}
    Dim myPositions As Single() = {0.0F, 0.2F, 0.4F, 0.6F, 0.8F, 1.0F}
    Dim myBlend As New Blend
    myBlend.Factors = myFactors
    myBlend.Positions = myPositions
    Dim lgBrush2 As New LinearGradientBrush(startPoint2, endPoint2, _
    Color.Blue, Color.Red)
    lgBrush2.Blend = myBlend
    Dim ellipseRect2 As New Rectangle(20, 110, 120, 80)
    e.Graphics.FillEllipse(lgBrush2, ellipseRect2)
End Sub

Blend(Int32)

new System.Drawing.Drawing2D.Blend : int -> System.Drawing.Drawing2D.Blend
Public Sub New (count As Integer)

Parameters

count
Int32

The number of elements in the Factors and Positions arrays.
