currently jdk/swing does not use locale value to determine direction of text
or menu or other ui layout for locales that use right to left orientation, such
as Persian, Arabic, Hebrew
and assumes that user must code in these values, which usually means they
would need to code to determine what locale user of app is in, and then
set the orientation as needed.
(see jdk/swing issue 4505945)
for designtime, form editor does not show preview in the orientation of rtl
locales if that is locale user is in while designing.
this rfe is for showing preview in that orientation, if user is either
- in one of those locales
- sets a property that indicates they want to
2nd way might be more flexible.
This is based partially on customer comments on the whole situation of
the bidi support for nb.
issue on ide showing its own menus, etc as per locale is 96471
issue on platform doing the same for generated modules is 96333
perhaps some kind of code sample or component to add the template
for code that would set orientation based on locale could be added
to pallette ?
is this something that could be done easily for 6.1 ?
