Private Sub GradientFill()

 Dim r As Double
 r = ScaleHeight / 3.142
 'Hint: Multiplying r by differnt values give different effects (try 2.3)
 For i = 0 To ScaleHeight

'Hint: Changing sin to cos reverses range
Me.Line (0, i)-(ScaleWidth, i), RGB(c, c, c + 30)
'Hint: Notice the bias to blue. You can be more subtle by reducing this number (try 10). Try other colours too.
