Hi. I am using the following code to paint my TaskPane, shown in the image below, but I need
the darker color to come further over to the right. So I need the fade to happen further to the right. Is that possible?

   Dim graphics As Graphics = e.Graphics()

        Dim rectBrush As New System.Drawing.Rectangle(0, 0, 2000, 430)
        Dim brush As LinearGradientBrush
        brush = New LinearGradientBrush(rectBrush, Color.FromArgb(46, 100, 160), _
                        Color.White, LinearGradientMode.Horizontal)
        graphics.FillRectangle(brush, rectBrush)
