Enumerates values that control the layout direction for views.
[Xamarin.Forms.TypeConverter(typeof(Xamarin.Forms.FlowDirectionConverter))] public enum FlowDirection
type FlowDirection =
Indicates that view will be laid out left to right. This is the default when the view has no parent.
Indicates that the view's layout direction will match the parent view's layout direction.
Indicates that view will be laid out right to left.
The following contains a few important points from Right-to-Left Localization. Developers should consult that document for more information about limitations of right-to-left support, and for requirements to implement right-to-left support on various target platforms.
The default value of FlowDirection for a visual element that has no parent is LeftToRight, even on platforms where FlowDirection is RightToLeft. Therefore, developers must deliberately opt in to right-to-left layout. Developers can choose right-to-left layout by setting the FlowDirection property of the root element to RightToLeft to chosse right-to-left layout, or to MatchParent to match the device layout.
All VisualElements that have a parent default to MatchParent.
