FlowDirection Enumeration

Defines constants that specify the content flow direction for text and user interface (UI) elements. 

Namespace:  System.Windows
Assembly:  PresentationCore (in PresentationCore.dll)
[LocalizabilityAttribute(LocalizationCategory.None, Readability = Readability.Unreadable)]
public enum FlowDirection
<object property="enumerationMemberName" .../>
Member nameDescription
LeftToRightIndicates that content should flow from left to right.
RightToLeftIndicates that content should flow from right to left.

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.

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;
