Gradient Background Image - May 2012

If you download this tip please consider making a modest donation.

As part of the process of dynamically altering a web page's background I have started using a gradient image. The process is described in this Tip-Of-The-Month. I created an Asp.Net, VB.Net application to demonstrate the method. Click here to run the demo.

The Demo Application

The Asp.Net, VB.Net, VS/2008 project Gradient is documented here.

Gradient Image Maker

I used a Gradient Image Maker I found on the web to create the images. Then I used the Seamless Image Maker that I wrote for the March 2012 tip-of-the-month. You should make a seamless image if the page's background is not fixed or if the page contains a lot of data.
