Specify that the desktop application will read from right to left instead of from left to right. This causes the layout of all forms and their contents to be mirrored, so that the starting point for reading is the right side.



Assignment file:

Any application assignment file



Default value:



By setting $RTL_APPLICATION in the application assignment file, the application components and their contents are displayed as a mirror image of the appearance in the Uniface Development Environment.

The setting is applied to the application, even when running on a left-to-right system.

Fields will automatically have right-to-left functionality. To change this behavior set $RTL_FIELDS to off.
