Gradient fills are usually implemented by dividing the paint region into smaller rectangular regions. Then each of the small rectangular regions are painted with a color and the next region is painted with a small change of color. Pseudo code is the following:

  // assume region is the screen and the screen is divided into
  // 255 regions
  for (int i = 0; i < 256; i++)
  {
    CColor color(i, i, i);
    CBrush brush(color);
    dc.Rectangle(rectangle[i], brush);
  }
