Defines constants that specify the content flow direction for text and user interface (UI) elements.
public enum class FlowDirection
[System.Windows.Localizability(System.Windows.LocalizationCategory.None, Readability=System.Windows.Readability.Unreadable)] public enum FlowDirection
type FlowDirection =
Public Enum FlowDirection
|LeftToRight LeftToRight LeftToRight LeftToRight||0||
Indicates that content should flow from left to right.
|RightToLeft RightToLeft RightToLeft RightToLeft||1||
Indicates that content should flow from right to left.
<FlowDocument> <Paragraph FlowDirection="LeftToRight"> This paragraph will flow from left to right. </Paragraph> </FlowDocument>
The following example shows how to use the FlowDirection enumeration programmatically.
Paragraph par = new Paragraph(new Run("This paragraph will flow from left to right.")); par.FlowDirection = FlowDirection.LeftToRight;
Dim par As New Paragraph(New Run("This paragraph will flow from left to right.")) par.FlowDirection = FlowDirection.LeftToRight
The flow direction of content typically corresponds to the innate flow direction of the language being represented. Hebrew and Arabic provide examples of languages that naturally flow from right-to-left. English, German, and Russian provide examples of languages that naturally flow from left-to-right.
