Specifies a value indicating whether the text appears from right to left, such as when using Hebrew or Arabic fonts.
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)
When you retrieve the value of the RightToLeft property from ContextMenu, MainMenu, and ProgressBar you will get the value of you assigned. In contrast, if you are deriving your own class from Control, and you assign a value of Inherit to the RightToLeft property, the value returned will be the setting of the RightToLeft property of the parent control. If there is no parent control, it will return a value of No. Otherwise, it will return a value of Yes or No, depending on the value that you assigned to the RightToLeft property of your derived class.
For more information about how enabling right-to-left alignment affects Windows Forms controls, see the Control.RightToLeft property.
