Hi. I want to get a gradient effect on a panel in my Windows forms application in the seven different ways that you can achieve this with an ASP.net chart shown below.
For a LeftRight gradient in my ASP.net chart I use the VB.net code at the bottom to achieve
the same on my Windows Forms panel. What code would I use to achieve the other chart gradients in the list on my Windows Forms Panel

chart1.BackGradientStyle = GradientStyle.LeftRight

Centre
Dialgonal Left
Diagonal Right
Horizontal Centre
Left Right
Top Bottom
Vertical Centre

            Dim graphics As Graphics = pChartBackColor.CreateGraphics

            Dim rectBrush As New System.Drawing.Rectangle(0, 0, 46, 46)
            Dim brush As LinearGradientBrush
            brush = New LinearGradientBrush(rectBrush, Color.FromArgb(A, R, G, B), _
                                    Color.White, LinearGradientMode.Horizontal)

You have some that have different names in the LinearGradientMode enum like

Diagonal Left ~ Backward Diagonal
Diagonal Right ~ Forward Diagonal

etc.

Try checking all of the available modes in LinearGradientMode enum to see which one you are able to use.
