Description Vince Kraemer 2006-03-11 17:08:28 UTC
If the IDE is executing in a locale that that reads left-to-right, new "output"
windows (and search results, and junit output, and ....) should open on the
left.  In a right-to-left locale, the windows should open to the right.

Here is a concrete example...

I had two windows open in the output area

| JUnit test results  | Output |                 |

Then I did a search...

| JUnit test results  | Output | *Search Results*  |
| searching....

I read that as searching for test results...

This may read better.... since a users "focus" will shift to the left automatically

| *Search results* | JUnit test results  | Output |
| searching....

There are some other more recent issues related to right to left behavior.
by default, swing does not handle rtl based on if the locale is a rtl one but
additional coding to happen.

the bug is that the UI behavior for left-to-right languages is wrong...
