Before you can do this exercise, you'll need to download and unzip this file (if you have any problems doing this, click here for help).

You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.

Create a window called Kaleidosope containing as many of the following rectangles and ellipses as you have time for (once you've done 2 or 3, it may be time to move on!):

WrapPanel with Shapes

The best container for these shapes is a WrapPanel, as this will display the shapes as a 1x6, 2x3, 3x2 or 6x1 grid, depending on the size of the window. You don't need to bother including the labels.


Bored?  You could always add a linear gradient brush to the wrap panel itself:

WrapPanel with spreadmethod reflect

This wrap panel has a linear gradient, with start point halfway down the left-hand side, end point a little way in from the left and SpreadMethod set to Repeat.

Close down any windows you have open!
