VB.net Use Linear Gradient brush on a button control

Hi. How would I apply the same sort of formatting as used in the procedure below on a button, with the gradient getting lighter from top to bottom.

Thanks

Public Sub TranslateTransformExample(ByVal e As PaintEventArgs)

    ' Create a LinearGradientBrush.
    Dim myRect As New Rectangle(20, 20, 200, 100)
    Dim myLGBrush As New LinearGradientBrush(myRect, Color.Blue, _
    Color.Red, 0.0F, True)

    ' Draw a rectangle to the screen using the LinearGradientBrush.
    e.Graphics.FillRectangle(myLGBrush, myRect)

    ' Rotate the LinearGradientBrush.
    myLGBrush.RotateTransform(90.0F)

    ' Scale the gradient for the height of the rectangle.
    myLGBrush.ScaleTransform(0.5F, 1.0F)

    ' Draw to the screen, the rotated and scaled gradient.
    e.Graphics.FillRectangle(myLGBrush, 20, 150, 200, 100)

    ' Rejustify the brush to start at the top edge of the rectangle.
    myLGBrush.TranslateTransform(-20.0F, 0.0F)

    ' Draw a third rectangle to the screen using the translated brush.
    e.Graphics.FillRectangle(myLGBrush, 20, 300, 200, 100)
End Sub
