    Detailed Description

    A gradient is defined by two or more colors, which will be blended seemlessly. The colors are specified at their position in the range 0.0 - 1.0 via the GradientStop item. For example, the following code paints a rectangle with a gradient starting with red, blending to yellow at 1/3 of the size of the rectangle, and ending with Green:

     Rectangle {
         width: 100; height: 100
         gradient: Gradient {
             GradientStop { position: 0.0; color: "red" }
             GradientStop { position: 0.33; color: "yellow" }
             GradientStop { position: 1.0; color: "green" }

    Note that this item is not a visual representation of a gradient. To display a gradient use a visual item (like rectangle) which supports having a gradient set on it for display.
