GRADIENT_RECT structure

The GRADIENT_RECT structure specifies the index of two vertices in the pVertex array in the GradientFill function. These two vertices form the upper-left and lower-right boundaries of a rectangle.

Syntax

typedef struct _GRADIENT_RECT {
  ULONG UpperLeft;
  ULONG LowerRight;
} GRADIENT_RECT, *PGRADIENT_RECT, *LPGRADIENT_RECT;

Members

UpperLeft

The upper-left corner of a rectangle.

LowerRight

The lower-right corner of a rectangle.

Remarks

The GRADIENT_RECT structure specifies the values of the pVertex array that are used when the dwMode parameter of the GradientFill function is GRADIENT_FILL_RECT_H or GRADIENT_FILL_RECT_V. For related GradientFill structures, see GRADIENT_TRIANGLE and TRIVERTEX.

The following images shows examples of a rectangle with a gradient fill - one in horizontal mode, the other in vertical mode.
