[BindableAttribute(true)]
public bool IsDirectionReversed { get; set; }
<object IsDirectionReversed="bool" .../>

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.

Identifier field

IsDirectionReversedProperty

Metadata properties set to true

None

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.

Slider hslider = new Slider();
hslider.Orientation = Orientation.Horizontal;
hslider.Width = 100;
hslider.Minimum = 1;
hslider.Maximum = 10;
hslider.IsDirectionReversed = true;
hslider.IsMoveToPointEnabled = true;
hslider.AutoToolTipPrecision = 2;
hslider.AutoToolTipPlacement =
  AutoToolTipPlacement.BottomRight;
hslider.TickPlacement = TickPlacement.BottomRight;

// Manually add ticks to the slider.
DoubleCollection tickMarks = new DoubleCollection();
tickMarks.Add(0.5);
tickMarks.Add(1.5);
tickMarks.Add(2.5);
tickMarks.Add(3.5);
tickMarks.Add(4.5);
tickMarks.Add(5.5);
tickMarks.Add(6.5);
tickMarks.Add(7.5);
tickMarks.Add(8.5);
tickMarks.Add(9.5);
hslider.Ticks = tickMarks;

// Create a selection range.
hslider.IsSelectionRangeEnabled = true;
hslider.SelectionStart = 2.5;
hslider.SelectionEnd = 7.5;
cv2.Children.Add(hslider);
<Slider Width="100" 
        Orientation="Horizontal"  
        Minimum="1" Maximum="10" 
        IsDirectionReversed="True"
        IsMoveToPointEnabled="True"
        AutoToolTipPrecision="2" AutoToolTipPlacement="BottomRight"
        TickPlacement="BottomRight"
        Ticks="0.5, 1.5, 2.5, 3.5, 4.5, 5.5, 6.5, 7.5, 8.5, 9.5" 
        IsSelectionRangeEnabled="true"
        SelectionStart="2.5" SelectionEnd="7.5" Name="mySlider"/>
