Namespace:   System.Windows.Documents
Assembly:  PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)

Public Property FlowDirection As FlowDirection

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.FlowDirection

A member of the FlowDirection enumeration specifying the relative flow direction. Getting this property returns the currently effective flow direction. Setting this property causes the contents of the Inline element to re-flow in the indicated direction.

The default value is LeftToRight.

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.

Note: 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 then the default of LeftToRight, you must specify it yourself.

The following example shows how to set the FlowDirection attribute of a Inline element (Run).

<FlowDocument>
  <Paragraph>
    <Run FlowDirection="LeftToRight">
      This paragraph will flow from left to right.
    </Run>
  </Paragraph>
</FlowDocument>

The following example shows how to set the FlowDirection property programmatically.

Dim run As New Run("This text run will flow from left to right.")
run.FlowDirection = FlowDirection.LeftToRight
