ReverseTextDirection
 
Description

Languages whose script is written from right to left (such as Arabic and Hebrew) are implemented in one of the following ways:

  • data is stored left to right but displayed by the application (for example, a browser) in right to left form.
  • data is stored right to left.

ReverseTextDirection allows you to reverse content data that is stored left to right, so that it is stored in right to left form.

Note:

You must ensure that the data has been written from right to left (for example, by using the View Source option when you display the data in a browser). If you set ReverseTextDirection for data that has been written from left to right and is only displayed as from right to left (for example, in a browser), it will be imported in reverse and become unreadable.

Example

ImportFieldOpApplyTo0=DRECONTENT
ImportFieldOp0=ReverseTextDirection

In this example, the text direction of the DRECONTENT field is reversed.
