The GradientView command toggles gradient view mode, which displays a customizable color gradient as a viewport background.

The default are two colors top-to-bottom.

The command acts as a "toggle." Run it once to turn gradient background on, run it again to turn it off.

This command only affects display modes where the Background is set to use Application Settings.
