In Figure 3-10, the rectangle on the left is filled with a linear gradient brush.

You can also click-and-drag the control’s body to move it. As you drag the control, snap lines appear to show when the control lines up with other controls in various ways such as along the left edges, right edges, top edges, content, and so forth.
