8.2.9 Using gradient fill for bar graphs

It is possible to use color gradient fill for the individual bars in the bar graph.

Color gradient fill fills a rectangle with a smooth transition between two colors. In what direction the transition goes (from left to right, down and up, from the middle and out etc) is determined by the style of the gradient fill. JpGraph currently supports 8 different styles.

When using gradient fills there are a couple of caveats you should be aware of:
