    Lightbulb Gradients in backgrounds

    Hey guys!

    Ive been looking around and i have noticed how some deisgners use gradients in backgrounds.

    here is an example ( enter the site )
    http://www.pixelranger.com

    its a nice effect going from black to dark blue.

    I tried it, but i think my method is wrong!

    So does anyone know how to create this?



    thanks

    That site is done with Flash. I've been playing around with a sliding menu that has a nead gradient effect using a Microsoft proprietary effect as a CSS attribute:

    filterrogidXImageTransform.Microsoft.gradient(enabled='true',gradientType='1',startColorstr='#d40441', endColorstr='#2644b2');
    The page I've done is too convoluted to try to explain what's happening, but try a Google search on "filter" and DXImageTransform and see what you come up with.
    I'll do that myself and see what I can find.
    Darn emoticons......
    That should read:
    filter(colon)progid(colon)DXImageTransform......etc.

    You could always use a small gif or css to repeat it all the way across a table with 100% width
    any graphic package (except stupid paint) should allow u to create a nice small image with a gradient effect. my website goes from light blue to white, using a small gif that's a few hundred bytes.

    hope that helps
