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

member FlowDirection : FlowDirection with get, set

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 TableCell 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 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.
