Right-To-Left support in Syncfusion Angular Components

12 Jan 20235 minutes to read

Right-to-Left (RTL) support allows applications to effectively communicate with users who use languages that are written from right to left, such as Arabic, Hebrew, etc.

Syncfusion Angular UI components support for right-to-left (RTL) by setting the enableRtl property to true. This adds the class name e-rtl to the component element and renders all Syncfusion Angular components in a right-to-left direction.

Enable RTL for all components

To enable Right-To-Left (RTL) support for all components, users can set the enableRtl property directly in their application. Here is an example code snippet using the ListView component:

import { enableRtl } from '@syncfusion/ej2-base';
import { Component} from '@angular/core';
// Enables Right to left alignment for all controls
enableRtl(true);

@Component({
    selector: 'app-container',
    template: `<ejs-listview id='sample-list' [dataSource]='data' [fields]='fields' showHeader='true' headerTitle='Social Media'>
    <ng-template #template let-data="">
    <span class=' icon'><span class='media'></span></span>
    </ng-template></ejs-listview>`
})

export class AppComponent {
    public data: Object = [
    { class: 'facebook', socialMedia: 'Facebook', id: 'media1' },
    { class: 'twitter', socialMedia: 'Twitter', id: 'media2' },
    { class: 'tumblr', socialMedia: 'Tumblr', id: 'media4' },
    { class: 'google-plus', socialMedia: 'Google Plus', id: 'media5' },
    { class: 'skype', socialMedia: 'Skype', id: 'media6' },
    { class: 'vimeo', socialMedia: 'Vimeo', id: 'media7' },
    { class: 'instagram', socialMedia: 'Instagram', id: 'media8' },
    { class: 'youtube', socialMedia: 'YouTube', id: 'media9' },
    ];

    public fields: Object = { text: 'socialMedia' };
}
import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
import { ListViewModule } from '@syncfusion/ej2-angular-lists';
/**
 * Module
 */
@NgModule({
    imports: [
        BrowserModule,
        ListViewModule
    ],
    declarations: [AppComponent],
    bootstrap: [AppComponent]
})
export class AppModule { }
import { platformBrowserDynamic } from '@angular/platform-browser-dynamic';
import { enableProdMode } from '@angular/core';
import { AppModule } from './app.module';

enableProdMode();
platformBrowserDynamic().bootstrapModule(AppModule);

Enable RTL for an individual component

To enable Right-To-Left (RTL) support for an individual component, users can set the enableRtl property in the component’s options. Here is an example code snippet using the ListView component:

import { Component} from '@angular/core';

@Component({
    selector: 'app-root',
    template: `<ejs-listview id='sample-list' [dataSource]='data' [fields]='fields' showHeader='true'
    enableRtl='true' headerTitle='Social Media'>
    <ng-template #template let-data="">
    <span class=' icon'><span class='media'></span></span>
    </ng-template></ejs-listview> `
})

export class AppComponent {
    public data: Object = [
    { class: 'facebook', socialMedia: 'Facebook', id: 'media1' },
    { class: 'twitter', socialMedia: 'Twitter', id: 'media2' },
    { class: 'tumblr', socialMedia: 'Tumblr', id: 'media4' },
    { class: 'google-plus', socialMedia: 'Google Plus', id: 'media5' },
    { class: 'skype', socialMedia: 'Skype', id: 'media6' },
    { class: 'vimeo', socialMedia: 'Vimeo', id: 'media7' },
    { class: 'instagram', socialMedia: 'Instagram', id: 'media8' },
    { class: 'youtube', socialMedia: 'YouTube', id: 'media9' },
    ];

    public fields: Object = { text: 'socialMedia' };
}
import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
import { ListViewModule } from '@syncfusion/ej2-angular-lists';
/**
 * Module
 */
@NgModule({
    imports: [
        BrowserModule,
        ListViewModule
    ],
    declarations: [AppComponent],
    bootstrap: [AppComponent]
})
export class AppModule { }
import { platformBrowserDynamic } from '@angular/platform-browser-dynamic';
import { enableProdMode } from '@angular/core';
import { AppModule } from './app.module';

enableProdMode();
platformBrowserDynamic().bootstrapModule(AppModule);
