Native RTL support in Android 4.2 (right to left languages support)

Hexamob 03/6/2013

There are some languages around the world that can be read from left to right (English, Spanish,…) or right to left (Arabic, Hebrew, Persian and others). To solve this, Android Developers upgraded Android version 4.1 to add support bi-directional in the TextView and EditText allowing us to view and edit both left to right (LTR) and right-to-left (RTL) . Finally, in Android 4.2 this solution is added natively and we can make RTL designs with the same experience regardless of language. Well done, Google! android rtl support languages right to left arabic android rtl support native natively right to left ltr left to right
