Silverlight RTL

time to read 1 min | 157 words

And on the heels of the Blame Microsoft post, here is a perfect example. Silverlight doesn't support Right to Left languages. This means that if I want to display Hebrew or Arabic content, it is flat out.

This is usually the place where you sharpen a steak knife and go to meeting with a lot of red faced people and you need to wear ear muffs.

Until an angel appears...

Justin Angel went ahead and built RTL support to Silverlight. Check the links for details, but there a CodePlex project, a webcast and an online demo.

Rendering Comparison
Normal Silverlight
RTL (Right-to-Left): Not Supported
Align-to-right: Not Supported
Silverlight Hebrew & Arabic support
RTL: Supported
Align-to-right: Supported

"Silverlight was buggy in that it only supported English. Someone built a workaround."

Congratulations. This is fun. What workaround shall we focus on today?
