Noob question about gradient fills

Noob question about gradient fills

Noob question about gradient fills

(OP)
Ok, I know I'm an AI noob.  So we all have to start somewhere!  I have read other threads about gradient fills.  Maybe I just completely do not understand this program b/c it is so different from Photoshop.  I want to know how to create a rectangle with a gradient blue fill.  All I can get is greyscale.  

RE: Noob question about gradient fills

Make your rectangle, click the 'gradient' icon to get your greyscale gradient, then go to Window > Gradient. In the gradient palette that appears, you'll see a square underneath each end of the gradient, one black and one white. If the color palette isn't visible, open in now (Window > Color), then click on either square to see what color it is. Changing the color palette will alter the color at that point.

Thanx for the time of helping a noob!  The learning curve for AI is must greater than Photoshop.
