Gets or sets the relative direction for flow of content within a Block element. This is a dependency property.
Assembly: PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)
XMLNS for XAML: http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation, http://schemas.microsoft.com/netfx/2007/xaml/presentation
Getting this property returns the currently effective flow direction. Setting this property causes the contents of the Block element to re-flow in the indicated direction.
The flow direction 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.
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 than the default of LeftToRight, you must specify it yourself.
The following example shows how to set the property programmatically.
Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP SP2, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2003
