but in Arabic(right to left language)

the cursor is always fixed at 1st right position make confusion to user who is typing ??

but in Arabic when I type some chars the cursor is still at first char.

    Hi Ahmed;

    The RichText Control and RichText DataWindow actually uses a 3rd party control - TX Text Control component from http://www.textcontrol.com. The control as embedded in PB is a subset of the full control from Text Control systems. AFAIK, the basic control in the RT Control and DW does not support right to left processing. I am not sure even if the full version support right to left as the only languages the control seems to support are English & German (from what I can see).

    Regards ... Chris
