Gets or sets whether the text displayed by the control is displayed from right to left.
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)
This property enables your menus to support languages that are written from right to left. When this property is set to RightToLeft.Yes, the menu item text will be displayed from right to left instead of the default left to right method.
For more information about how enabling right-to-left alignment affects Windows Forms controls, see the RightToLeft property.
The following code example uses the GetForm method to determine if a MainMenu is currently parented to the form. If the call in the example code to GetForm does not return Nothing, the code then clones the menu structure of the MainMenu using the CloneMenu method. The example code then sets the property to RightToLeft.Yes on the new copy of the MainMenu to create a MainMenu that can be used for languages that support right to left text. This example requires that you have a MainMenu created that is named mainMenu1.
Public Sub CloneMyMenu() ' Determine if mainMenu1 is currently hosted on the form. If (mainMenu1.GetForm() IsNot Nothing) Then ' Create a copy of the MainMenu that is hosted on the form. Dim mainMenu2 As MainMenu = mainMenu1.CloneMenu() ' Set the RightToLeft property for mainMenu2. mainMenu2.RightToLeft = RightToLeft.Yes End If End Sub
