An abstract class that describes a gradient, composed of gradient stops. Classes that derive from GradientBrush describe different ways of interpreting gradient stops.

[ContentPropertyAttribute("GradientStops", true)] public abstract class GradientBrush : Brush
The GradientBrush type exposes the following members.
|GradientBrush||Initializes a new instance of the GradientBrush class.|
|ColorInterpolationMode||Gets or sets a ColorInterpolationMode enumeration value that specifies how the gradient's colors are interpolated.|
|Dispatcher||Gets the Dispatcher this object is associated with. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)|
|GradientStops||Gets or sets the brush's gradient stops.|
|MappingMode||Gets or sets a BrushMappingMode enumeration value that specifies whether the positioning coordinates of the gradient brush are absolute or relative to the output area.|
|Opacity||Gets or sets the degree of opacity of a Brush. (Inherited from Brush.)|
|RelativeTransform||Gets or sets the transformation that is applied to the brush using relative coordinates. (Inherited from Brush.)|
|SpreadMethod||Gets or sets the type of spread method that specifies how to draw a gradient that starts or ends inside the bounds of the object to be painted.|
|Transform||Gets or sets the transformation that is applied to the brush. (Inherited from Brush.)|
|CheckAccess||Determines whether the calling thread has access to this object. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)|
|ClearValue||Clears the local value of a dependency property. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)|
|Equals(Object)||Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|Finalize||Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before the Object is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetAnimationBaseValue||Returns any base value established for a Silverlight dependency property, which would apply in cases where an animation is not active. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)|
|GetHashCode||Serves as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetType||Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetValue||Returns the current effective value of a dependency property from a DependencyObject. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)|
|MemberwiseClone||Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|ReadLocalValue||Returns the local value of a dependency property, if a local value is set. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)|
|SetValue||Sets the local value of a dependency property on a DependencyObject. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)|
|ToString||Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|ColorInterpolationModeProperty||Identifies the ColorInterpolationMode dependency property.|
|GradientStopsProperty||Identifies the GradientStops dependency property.|
|MappingModeProperty||Identifies the MappingMode dependency property.|
|SpreadMethodProperty||Identifies the SpreadMethod dependency property.|
