Hi all,

I'm build a basic application to test tycho build, and, RTL/multi-languages rendering in RAP 3.1.1 .

My dummy application is running on both RAP and RCP thanks to single sourcing.

While both RAP and RCP versions of my application are both rendering some widgets in hebrew (Yes/No, Ok/Cancel, preferences menu), only the RCP application is rendered in Right-To-Left.

Do I have something more to do in RAP to enable RTL?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Regards.

PS: I tried to add "-bidi" parameter to my (RAP) web.xml without any effect:

<init-param>
<param-name>commandline</param-name>
<param-value>-registryMultiLanguage -bidi "on=y;textDir=rtl"</param-value>
</init-param>

Hi,
how did you enable the right-to-left support? Did you set the SWT.RIGHT_TO_LEFT style on your main Shell? Is this a workbench application?

Ivan

Hi,

That's indeed a workbench application.

As suggested by you, I have added an explicit Style (SWT.RIGHT_TO_LEFT) for the workbench window configurer when locale is "hebrew" and it works Smile !!!

public class ApplicationWorkbenchAdvisor extends WorkbenchAdvisor {

    private static final String PERSPECTIVE_ID = "example.bundle.perspective";

    public WorkbenchWindowAdvisor createWorkbenchWindowAdvisor(IWorkbenchWindowConfigurer configurer) {
    	if (Activator.getDefault().getLocaleProvider().getLocale().getLanguage().equals("iw")) {	//$NON-NLS-1$
    		configurer.setShellStyle(SWT.RIGHT_TO_LEFT);	
    	}
        return new ApplicationWorkbenchWindowAdvisor(configurer);
    }

    public String getInitialWindowPerspectiveId() {
        return PERSPECTIVE_ID;
    }
}


That way, I have RTL only with browser displaying hebrew but LTR for french/english browsers.

Thank you very much for your suggestion that solved the issue.

I'm only wondering why explicit mention of the shell style must be done with RAP while it works without it for RCP.

Regards,
Johann

Hi,
that's an interesting question, which I'm interesting too Smile Did you specify something related to RTL as extension point?
Regards,
Ivan
