Instance Method

imageFlippedForRightToLeftLayoutDirection

Returns a new version of the current image, prepared to flip horizontally when it’s in a right-to-left layout.

Declaration

- (UIImage *)imageFlippedForRightToLeftLayoutDirection;

Return Value

The current image, prepared to flip horizontally if it’s in a right-to-left layout.

Discussion

Use this method to specify an image that should flip in a right-to-left layout. Note that most images do not need to flip in a right-to-left layout.

This method returns the current UIImage object with the flipsForRightToLeftLayoutDirection property set to YES; it does not return a flipped image. When the returned image is displayed in a UIImageView object in a right-to-left layout direction (whether the layout direction is set by the system language, or because the image view’s semanticContentAttribute property is set to UISemanticContentAttributeForceRightToLeft), the image appears flipped. When the returned image is displayed in a left-to-right context, it appears unflipped.
