I don't know how that works. Can you point me to some resources on how to enable that? All madExcept dialogs just use pure win32 APIs (like CreateWindow and TextOut etc), no VCL.

delphi 7 has this property for almost all his components
as i saw u use TEdit and TLabel, for examples
but the property list u give for each component, is very limited
compared to those that comes with delphi itself

it seems that there is an internal support for bidimode
in the text area
where the user need to type what led to the error
right ctrl + right shift
does align the text to the right
as it should

just thought to let u know

For what controls do you need this? Just for edit/memo controls?

the truth is
i need it for the form itself

currently i have (for example)
name:
_____________________________________

i need it to be
:name
_____________________________________

the example is in english, but ofcourse im writing in hebrew there :)

I'm a noob with this. Can't you realize right-to-left through simple translation of the labels? Of course that wouldn't work for edits/memos.

i just noticed it didnt get well in my post
edits and memos are ok, i just press right Ctrl + right shift and it works

the problem is with the labels position
now it is placed on the up left position from the edit
i need it to be placed on the up right position of the edit

So the only thing missing is right aligned labels? Edits/memos don't need to be changed?

How about checkbox? Should they also be right aligned? With the check box on the right side of the text?

Let's do this the short and easy way: Please give me a detailed list of what needs to be changed exactly!

and checkbox, where the checkbox is on the right side of the text
