well this is great feature thanks, actually a lot of middle Easterns was waiting for it long time ago is there any plans to do the same for desktop applications?

Ramy: Desktop applications written with our WPF controls support right-to-left languages.

Our WinForms controls do not, mainly because they were never designed to support RTL. Since we have a large number of controls, with a huge investment in the underlying source and common functionality, it's unlikely that we'll be adding that support any time soon. Despite our best intentions, it would be a nightmare of breaking changes and frankly neither we or our customers would want that.
