Right to Left Languages

Hi

I would like to display my software that is suitable for right to left
languages. So basically mirror all the positioning so everything reads and
is placed from right to left.
Does gupta have a way of doing this or would I have to manually position
each menu in every dialog, change the locations of each window etc?

Kind regards
Tina

Windows itself could do it... (because they also want to sell it in Arabia
:-) )

With the windows extended style WS_EX_LAYOUTRTL you could mirror a window
(Right-To-Left).

Hi

I seem to have a problem with windows containing picture controls with the
WS_EX_LAYOUTRTL set. The picture disappears! How do I stop the picture from
disappearing?

Kind regards,
Tina

I never used RTL rendering so I have no experience...

But your information is too small!
What for picture.. a TD picture control, a picture in the window
background,...?

Do you have a sample, showing the problem?

I just put a picture control onto the form. Here is your altered project
showing the picture control disappearing in runtime.
