Track.IsDirectionReversed Track.IsDirectionReversed Track.IsDirectionReversed Track.IsDirectionReversed Property


Gets or sets whether the direction of increasing Value is reversed from the default direction.

 property bool IsDirectionReversed { bool get(); void set(bool value); };
public bool IsDirectionReversed { get; set; }
member this.IsDirectionReversed : bool with get, set
Public Property IsDirectionReversed As Boolean

Property Value

true if the IncreaseRepeatButton and the DecreaseRepeatButton exchanged positions and the direction of increasing value is reversed; otherwise false. The default is false.


The following example shows how the IsDirectionReversed property is defined inside the ScrollBar control template when the Orientation property is Vertical.

<Track Grid.Row="1" Name="PART_Track"
    <RepeatButton Style="{DynamicResource ScrollBar_UpTrack}"/>
    <Thumb Style="{DynamicResource ScrollBar_HorizontalThumb}"/>
    <RepeatButton Style="{DynamicResource ScrollBar_DownTrack}"/>


When the value of IsDirectionReversed is set to true, the DecreaseRepeatButton and the IncreaseRepeatButton in the Track exchange places.

Track values increase from left to right for both horizontal Slider and ScrollBar controls. However, the Track values for a vertical ScrollBar increase from top to bottom, whereas for a vertical Slider these values increase from bottom to top. When you set the IsDirectionReversed property to true, the direction of increasing value reverses.

If you implement a Track as part of a Slider control and you do not explicitly set the Track.IsDirectionReversed property, the Track.IsDirectionReversed property binds to the Slider.IsDirectionReversed property.
