The report and most of the report controls provide the Right To Left property.
This property specifies content layout within a control (for most controls, this property affects the direction of their text, and for the Check Box, this property also affects the check box position within the control).
By default, all report controls have this property set to Inherit, so enabling it for a report will apply this setting to all its controls.
The following controls support this feature:
- Check Box
- Page Info
- Pivot Grid
- Table of Contents
For the Panel and Table, this option only affects the controls contained in them.
When the Right To Left property of a report is set to Yes, you can also enable the Right To Left Layout property that specifies the position of controls within report bands. Enabling the right-to-left layout will also swap the page margins of a document (it will become impossible to place controls outside the right page margin).
The controls’ coordinates will remain unchanged and only the point and direction of reference will change (the X coordinate will be calculated starting with the top right corner).
The right-to-left layout is preserved when exporting a report to any of the supported formats (e.g., PDF, Excel, or RTF).
