Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the direction of increasing value is to the left for a horizontal slider or down for a vertical slider; otherwise, false. The default is false.


Dependency property identifier field: IsDirectionReversedProperty

The value of this property determines the direction of increasing value of a Slider. For example, when you move the Thumb control up on a vertical Slider when the IsDirectionReversed property is set to false, the Value of the Slider increases. If the value of the IsDirectionReversed property is changed to true, the Value of the Slider decreases as the Thumb moves up.


The following code example shows how to set the IsDirectionReversed property to specify the direction of increasing value.
