Right-to-Left Support

Right-to-Left (RTL) support represents the ability of a library, website, or application to handle and respond to users who communicate through right-to-left languages.

Right-to-left languages are Arabic, Hebrew, Chinese, Japanese, and others.

RTL Support by Packages

The following Kendo UI packages for Angular provide RTL support for their messages:


In web applications, the RTL mode can be enabled with the dir attribute of a DOM element.

To enable the RTL mode for all Kendo UI components in your Angular application, provide a text direction value by using the RTL token in the root module of the application.

You can also limit the RTL mode to a part of the application by providing the value to a sub-module. By default, the RTL mode is disabled.
