Metadata properties set to true


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.

This property binds to the IsDirectionReversed property for the Track control that it implements.

The following example shows how to set the IsDirectionReversed property.
