Vcl.Controls TControl


Specifies the bidirectional mode for the control.

Use BiDiMode to enable the control to adjust its appearance and behavior automatically when the application runs in a locale that reads from right to left instead of left to right. The bidirectional mode controls the reading order for the text, the placement of the vertical scroll bar, and whether the alignment is changed.

Alignment does not change for controls that are known to contain number, date, time, or currency values. For example, with data-aware controls, the alignment does not change for the following field types: ftSmallint, ftInteger, ftWord, ftFloat, ftCurrency, ftBCD, ftDate, ftTime, ftDateTime, ftAutoInc.
