Track.IsDirectionReversed Property

Gets or sets whether the direction of increasing Value is reversed from the default direction. This is a dependency property.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Controls.Primitives
Assembly:  PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)

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

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the IncreaseRepeatButton and the DecreaseRepeatButton exchanged positions and the direction of increasing value is reversed; otherwise false. The default is false.

Identifier field


Metadata properties set to true


When the value of IsDirectionReversed is set to true, the DecreaseRepeatButton and the IncreaseRepeatButton in the Track exchange places.

Track values increase from left to right for both horizontal Slider and ScrollBar controls. However, the Track values for a vertical ScrollBar increase from top to bottom, whereas for a vertical Slider these values increase from bottom to top. When you set the IsDirectionReversed property to true, the direction of increasing value reverses.

If you implement a Track as part of a Slider control and you do not explicitly set the Track.IsDirectionReversed property, the Track.IsDirectionReversed property binds to the Slider.IsDirectionReversed property.

The following example shows how the IsDirectionReversed property is defined inside the ScrollBar control template when the Orientation property is Vertical.

<Track Grid.Row="1" Name="PART_Track"
    <RepeatButton Style="{DynamicResource ScrollBar_UpTrack}"/>
    <Thumb Style="{DynamicResource ScrollBar_HorizontalThumb}"/>
    <RepeatButton Style="{DynamicResource ScrollBar_DownTrack}"/>
