TControl.BiDiMode

Indicates whether text controls use in bi-directional reading.

Declaration

Source position: controls.pp line 1767

public property TControl.BiDiMode : TBiDiMode
  read FBiDiMode
  write SetBiDiMode
  stored IsBiDiModeStored
  default bdLeftToRight;

Description

In "normal" reading mode (left-to-right, LTR) text entry starts at the left, text is almost left justified, and vertical scrollbars sit at the right side of the control.

In right-to-left mode text entry starts at the right, text is almost right justified, and vertical scrollbars sit at the left side of the control.

In a bidirectional environment these different placements and adjustments can be configured (swapped) in various (but not all) ways.

(Allows RTL languages such as Arabic and Hebrew to be used)

Wild guess: The default mode is established by the platform, RTL reading is not supported on all (Windows) platforms.
