Direction

API Reference: UI.FlexLayout.Direction

Direction is used to align objects right-to-left or left-to-right.

TypeScript code blocks include examples of how to implement, override and components within the theme. You can create page with the UI Editor to make your page compatible with theming and then you can implement themable components programmatically. Once the page is created with the UI Editor, it generates a class under scripts/generated/pages. You can then extend that class with the following TypeScript classes.

Direction.INHERIT is based on the language settings of the mobile device. If the the device language is a left-to-right language (such as English), the direction will be LTR. If the the device language is a right-to-left language (such as Arabic), the direction will be RTL.
