Property Value

Type Default Description
DefaultBoolean

Default

A DefaultBoolean enumeration value that specifies whether right-to-left mirror placement is turned on.

Remarks

Using the Control.RightToLeft inherited property, you can align the XtraTabControl's visual elements to support locales using right-to-left fonts. If this setting is enabled for the current tab control, it is automatically inherited by child controls that reside in tab pages.

Also, you can enable the right-to-left alignment for all DevExpress controls in a centralized way using the WindowsFormsSettings.RightToLeft property. The WindowsFormsSettings.RightToLeft property has priority over the Control.RightToLeft property.

By default, if the right-to-left alignment is enabled, the XtraTabControl automatically enables the mirror placement of its tab headers. In the figures below, you can see the regular and mirror tab placement.

XtraTabControl_LTR

XtraTabControl_RTL

The RightToLeftLayout property allows you to explicitly specify whether right-to-left mirror placement is turned on for the current tab control.
