public FlowDirection FlowDirection { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.FlowDirection

One of the FlowDirection values that specifies the relative flow direction. The default is FlowDirection.LeftToRight.

Getting this property returns the currently effective flow direction. Setting this property causes the contents of the ListItem 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.

System_CAPS_noteNote

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 FlowDirection attribute of a Block element (Paragraph).

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

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

Paragraph par = new Paragraph(new Run("This paragraph will flow from left to right."));
par.FlowDirection = FlowDirection.LeftToRight;
