InvertAxes Enumeration

InvertAxes Enumeration

Indicate the inversion of horizontal and vertical axes of the drawing surface.

This enumeration has a FlagsAttribute attribute that allows a bitwise combination of its member values.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Media.TextFormatting
Assembly:  PresentationCore (in PresentationCore.dll)

[FlagsAttribute]
public enum InvertAxes
<object property="enumerationMemberName" .../>

Member nameDescription
BothDrawing surface is inverted in both axes.
HorizontalDrawing surface is inverted in the horizontal axis.
NoneDrawing surface is not inverted in either axis.
VerticalDrawing surface is inverted in the vertical axis.

Text formatter clients usually invert the horizontal axis, or X-axis, of the drawing surface when performing right-to-left layout of text content.

In a less common case, a text formatter client may invert the vertical axis, or Y-axis, of the drawing surface to achieve the effect of having the coordinate origin at the bottom-left position of the screen. This is a useful technique when drawing certain types of graphs.
