SetVerticalGradient( MenuPart ,<vertical>)

 

 

MenuPart

A BYTE value representing a specific area of the menu. There are a series of internal equates available to easily identify these elements:

 

MenuBrushes:NormalBkgnd

EQUATE(1) !Normal Background

MenuBrushes:SelectedBkgnd

EQUATE(2) !Selected Background

MenuBrushes:HotBkgnd

EQUATE(3) !Hot Background

MenuBrushes:ImageBkgnd

EQUATE(4) !Image Background

MenuBrushes:NormalBarBkgnd

EQUATE(5) !Normal Select Bar Background

MenuBrushes:SelectedBarBkgnd

EQUATE(6) !Selected Bar Background

MenuBrushes:GrayBrush

EQUATE(7) !Gray Brush

MenuBrushes:FrameBrush

EQUATE(8) !Frame Brush

 

vertical

An optional BYTE value that specifies the direction of the color gradient. When TRUE (1), the direction of the gradient color is vertical. Otherwise, if omitted or False, the gradient is horizontal.

 

The SetVerticalGradient method is used to designate that any colors applied to the target MenuPart will be in a vertical direction.

Implementation:

The method is not called anywhere within the MenuStyleManager Class. It is an optional method that can be used by the developer to detect and possibly change the menu appearance by specifying a vertical gradient at runtime. It should be called prior to the SetColor method.

Return Data Type:     STRING
