It's nice to show cool gradient color as a
background color of the form in desktop can set different colors.

1.first add the frmMain_Paint method in the
Paint event of the form from the form properties

2.then add the method in your form -

private void frmMain_Paint(object sender, PaintEventArgs e)
Graphics g = e.Graphics;
Rectangle bounds = new Rectangle(Point.Empty, this.Size);
if (bounds.Width > 0 && bounds.Height > 0)
using (Brush b = new LinearGradientBrush(bounds,
Color.White, Color.Green,LinearGradientMode.Horizontal))
g.FillRectangle(b, bounds);
}}} your application,you will see nice gradient
color.change color from White and Green to your
favourite colors and run app again.
