public static DefaultBoolean GlobalRightToLeft { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description

One of the DefaultBoolean enumeration values.

Available values:

Name Description Return Value

The value is true.



The value is false.



The value is specified by a global option or a higher-level object.



Use the GlobalRightToLeft property to apply the selected right-to-left orientation to all DevExpress web controls within the web page or the entire web site. If the GlobalRightToLeft property is not specified (is set to Default), it returns the rightToLeft Web.config option value.

Depending on your application needs, you can use the GlobalRightToLeft property at different levels within your application. The main requirement is that the property should be explicitly assigned on executing each request.

  • Page Level

    Note that you should specify the GlobalRightToLeft property before the PreRender event is raised.

    protected void Page_PreInit(object sender, EventArgs e) {
         DevExpress.Web.ASPxWebControl.GlobalRightToLeft = DefaultBoolean.True;
  • Application Level - in Global.asax

    protected void Application_BeginRequest() {
        DevExpress.Web.ASPxWebControl.GlobalRightToLeft = DefaultBoolean.True;
