How to change the horizontal text alignment for the selected value of combo box.

How to change the horizontal text alignment for the selected value of combo box?

I am using SfComboBox to lad Arabic data as well, when using flow direction the drawer appears correctly but the Watermark text and the selected text appears on the other end. How can I center align or left align the selected text and the water mark.

Please advise.

Hi Sadhik, 
Greeting from Syncfusion. 
We have implemented the ComboBox by inheriting the Entry control. On setting FlowDirection to RightToLeft, the entry text will be aligned always on left corner of the control, so Watermark of the ComboBox will behaves as like entry text. We have achieved your requirement for aligning selected item center using custom renderer. Please have the code snippet, sample with screenshot below. 
 public class CustomRenderer : SfComboBoxRenderer
        protected override void OnElementChanged(ElementChangedEventArgs<SfComboBox> e)
            Control.TextField.TextAlignment = UIKit.UITextAlignment.Center;
