Example text

While we’re at it, let’s set a similar gradient on the Background property of the Grid but going the other way. Background = backgroundBrush; } The two brushes are created with two different styles of property initialization, but otherwise they’re basically the same. The LinearGradientBrush class defines two properties named StartPoint and EndPoint of type Point, which is a structure with X and Y properties representing a two-dimensional coordinate point. The StartPoint and EndPoint properties are relative to the object to which the brush is applied based on the standard windowing coordinate system: X values increase to the right and Y values increase going down.

Images in Code Judging solely from the XAML files in the HelloImage and HelloLocalImage projects, you might have assumed that the Source property of Image is defined as a string or perhaps the Uri type. In XAML, that Source string is a shortcut for an object of type ImageSource, which encapsulates the actual image that the Image element is responsible for displaying. Imaging. A BitmapSource can’t be instantiated either, but it defines public PixelWidth and PixelHeight properties as well as a SetSource method that lets you read in bitmap data from a file or network stream.

You can create the TextBlock prior to InitializeComponent, but you must add it to the Grid after InitializeComponent because the Grid does not exist prior to that call. The InitializeComponent method basically parses the XAML at run time and instantiates all the XAML objects and puts them all together in a tree. InitializeComponent is obviously an important method, which is why you might be puzzled when you can’t find it in the documentation. Here’s the story: When Visual Studio compiles the application, it generates some intermediate files.
