Remarks

Dependency property identifier field: BackgroundProperty

The Background property determines the background color of the Panel. For information about setting the background and other properties for the Silverlight plug-in, see How to: Add Silverlight to a Web Page by Using HTML.

The Background property specifies a Brush for the object. A Brush can represent a solid color, a linear or radial gradient, an image, or an applied video brush.

Some brush types (SolidColorBrush) support a XAML attribute syntax, whereas other brush types (ImageBrush, LinearGradientBrush, RadialGradientBrush) support only an object element syntax. This is why two versions of XAML syntax are shown for this property.
