What's Right is Right and What's Left is Left (Coming soon in v15.1)

20 May 2015

We previewed this feature on our Facebook page - so I'll keep it short and sweet (it's rather self-explanatory). v15.1 will introduce Right-To-Left (RTL) support across all major DevExpress WinForms controls including...

  • Charts
  • Grid controls (Grid, TreeList, Pivot Grid, Vertical Grid and Property Grid)
  • Data Editors and Controls (Range Control, Rating Control, etc.)
  • Ribbon, Menus and related controls (BackstageView, AppMenu, еtс.)
  • Layout Control and layout containers (TabControl, GroupControl, etc.)
  • Navigation Controls (Navigation Bar, Tile Control, etc.)
  • Application UI Controls (Docking, DocumentManager, etc.)

And yes, this is one of those features that's been a long time coming. We thank you for your patience.

While there are always good and great new features, one that has been requested a very very very very long time ago (8 YEARS!), is a diagram/flowchart control. See www.devexpress.com/.../AS15967. Anything you can blog about Ray?

@Mohamed Al Zayani: An XAF WinForms application is a regular .NET WinForms app that uses DevExpress controls. Thus, RTL will automatically work for supported controls in XAF. We have not performed special optimizations or checks at the XAF level though. If you experience any issues only in XAF apps, please report them to us.

@Farshid Aliakbari

Our RichEditControl is not yet included into a list of controls which support RTL. We certainly have plans to support this feature for RichEditControl as well, but we have not yet decided in what exact version it will be included.

To support RTL in RichEditControl entirely, we need support typing and rendering a text using script languages (in which several Unicode symbols can be rendered as a single glyph), calculating a caret position an selection for formatted RTL text, etc.

We continue working in this direction and will update our blogs and the "What's New" section for a corresponding release when RTL is supported for RichEditControl.
