How to specify the text of the EditControl in the RTL Mode?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: EditControl

The content of the EditControl can be displayed in the RightToLeft layout by enabling the property, RenderRightToLeft in the EditControl.

The following code example demonstrates the same.


//Sets the content of the EditControl in the RTL mode.
this.editControl1.RenderRightToLeft = true;
//Sets the content of the EditControl in the LTR mode.
this.editControl1.RenderRightToLeft = false;



'Sets the content of the EditControl in the RTL mode.
Me.editControl1.RenderRightToLeft = True
'Sets the content of the EditControl in the LTR mode.
Me.editControl1.RenderRightToLeft = False
