The standard Text control from SWT can be set to be right-aligned, which
is convenient for editing numbers etc. This option does not seem to be
available for StyledTexts. Here, you only have the orientation, but
this also reverses the input order like in arabian. The example snippet

http://dev.eclipse.org/viewcvs/index.cgi/org.eclipse.swt.sni ppets/src/org/eclipse/swt/snippets/Snippet213.java?rev=HEAD& amp;content-type=text/vnd.viewcvs-markup

which pretends to solve this is wrong and uses methods that don't exist.

Does anyone have a solution on how to right-align a StyledText?

Thanks,
Hans

You need the SWT from Eclipse 3.2M4

Ah, this is interesting. Thanks for the pointer. However, this raised
the question: Is 3.2 stable enough for serious work?

Honestly, for serious work I'd wait until at least M6 (API freeze) and preferably M7 or M8. However, if you really need the new API features, Eclipse milestones are stable enough to use, you just won't get the blessing of a gold build and six months of exhaustive testing.
