    The Gradient data visualization displays a gradient of color that transitions from one color to another.

    Parameters

    Syntax

    =Gradient(Gradient type, Color1, Color2)

    Usage

    Using Data Visualizers, the gradient can be applied in TextBox, Shape, CheckBox, and Container controls from BackgroundImage - Value property and in Image control from Value property. The following example shows how Gradient background style can be simply applied to a control.

    Example

     

    Set the following expression in the BackgroundImage.Value property of the Shape control.

    Paste into the BackgroundImage Value property of a Shape
    Copy Code
    =Gradient("Vertical","LightCyan","BlueVoilet")
    

    Dialog

    When you select a Shape control on your report, in the Properties window, drop down the BackGroundImage - Value property and select <Data Visualizer...> to launch the dialog. The same is true if you select an Image control and drop down the Value property. To build the data visualizer expression, select the appropriate values for each of the options in the dialog.

    Note: The Gradient style set using Data Visualizers is not displayed at design time.
