VB.net Coloring a panel with a gradient on a button click

Hi

I am using the following code to allow a user to select a color from the color picker that
in turn colors a panel. How do I color the panel using a gradient similar to that shown in the code further on

    Private Sub btnChartAreaColor_Click(sender As System.Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnChartAreaColor.Click
        Me.ColorDialog1.ShowDialog()
        Me.pChartAreaColor.BackColor = Me.ColorDialog1.Color

    End Sub



    Private Sub ChartBackColor_Paint(sender As System.Object, e As System.Windows.Forms.PaintEventArgs)
        Dim graphics As Graphics = e.Graphics()

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

something like this?

    Private _newColor As Color

    Private Sub Button1_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        Dim d As New ColorDialog
        d.ShowDialog()
        _newColor = d.Color
        Panel1.Invalidate()
    End Sub

    Private Sub Panel1_Paint(sender As Object, e As PaintEventArgs) Handles Panel1.Paint
        Dim graphics As Graphics = e.Graphics()

        Dim rectBrush As New Rectangle(0, 0, Panel1.Width, Panel1.Height)
        Dim brush As LinearGradientBrush
        brush = New LinearGradientBrush(rectBrush, _newColor, Color.White, LinearGradientMode.Horizontal)
        graphics.FillRectangle(brush, rectBrush)
    End Sub
