Fields

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.

Examples

The following example shows how to use the FlowDirection enumeration to set the FlowDirection attribute of a flow content Block element (Paragraph).

<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

Remarks

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.
