FlowDocument.FlowDirection Property

Gets or sets the relative direction for flow of content in a FlowDocument.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Documents
Assembly:  PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)
XMLNS for XAML: http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation, http://schemas.microsoft.com/netfx/2007/xaml/presentation

public FlowDirection FlowDirection { get; set; }
<object FlowDirection="FlowDirection" .../>

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.FlowDirection
One of the FlowDirection values that specifies the relative flow direction. The default is FlowDirection.LeftToRight.

Getting this property returns the currently effective flow direction. Setting this property causes the contents of the FlowDocument to reflow in the indicated direction.

The FlowDirection of content typically corresponds to the innate flow direction of the language being represented. Hebrew and Arabic are examples of languages that naturally flow from right to left. English, German, and Russian are examples of languages that naturally flow from left to right.

NoteNote

The value of this property is not automatically changed to match the language used by the operating system. If you need to use a different value then the default of LeftToRight, you must specify it yourself.

The following example shows how to set the FlowDirection attribute of a FlowDocument element.


<FlowDocumentReader>
  <FlowDocument 
    FlowDirection="LeftToRight"
  >
    <Paragraph>
      The FlowDirection 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.
    </Paragraph>
  </FlowDocument>
</FlowDocumentReader>


The following example shows how to set the FlowDirection property programmatically.


FlowDocument flowDoc = new FlowDocument(new Paragraph(new Run("A bit of text content...")));
// Set the content flow direction to left-to-right.
flowDoc.FlowDirection = System.Windows.FlowDirection.LeftToRight;
