Gradient colored shapes in report

edited February 2010 in General
Is there a way to place a shape on a report with a start color different than an end color so the shape has a gradient effect?

    Hi Wes,

    Gradient fill is not currently a native feature of the shape component.
    This is something we are strongly considering for the next version of
    ReportBuilder. You can try using the TppPaintBox component to manually draw
    the shape and gradient fill it by calling Windows API routines.

    Take a look at the Delphi GradientFillCanvas routine in the GraphUtil unit
    and the GradientFill routine in the Windows API.
