NamedRange.ReadingOrder Property

Gets or sets the reading order for the NamedRange control.

Namespace:  Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel
Assembly:  Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel (in Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.dll)

int ReadingOrder { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Int32
One of the following values: xlRTL (right-to-left), xlLTR (left-to-right), or xlContext.

Some of these constants might not be available to you, depending on the language support (U.S. English, for example) that you have selected or installed.

The following code example uses the ReadingOrder property to reverse the reading order of a NamedRange, if the current language that is selected or installed supports it.

This example is for a document-level customization.

Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.NamedRange readingOrderRange;
private void ReverseReadingOrder()
{
    readingOrderRange = this.Controls.AddNamedRange(
         this.Range["C1"], "readingOrderRange");
    if (this.readingOrderRange.ReadingOrder ==
        (int)Excel.Constants.xlRTL)
    {
        this.readingOrderRange.ReadingOrder =
            (int)Excel.Constants.xlLTR;
    }
    else
    {
        this.readingOrderRange.ReadingOrder =
            (int)Excel.Constants.xlRTL;
    }
}
