    Hi Yagnesh,

    Here are the steps to put the editor's content area in RTL mode:

    1) Set the editor's css file to point to an external css file:

     <telerik:radeditor runat="server" ID="RadEditor1">
            <telerik:EditorCssFile  Value="~/EditorContentArea.css"/>

    2) In the external css file put the a global body tag with a text-align property set to right !important, e.g.

    text-align: right !important;
        background-image: none;
        margin: 0px;
        scrollbar-face-color: #E9E9E9;
        scrollbar-highlight-color: #FFFFFF;
        scrollbar-shadow-color: #E9E9E9;
        scrollbar-3dlight-color: #DBDBDB;
        scrollbar-arrow-color: #787878;
        scrollbar-track-color: #F5F5F5;
        scrollbar-darkshadow-color: #AEAEAE;
        word-wrap: break-word;
    Save the file, delete your browser cache and restart your browser to see the change.

    I'm certainly no expert in RTL languages, but I think there's more to RTL than simply using text-align : right.

    I think you can get this to work by adding dir="rtl" to the HTML tag in the RAD Editor's IFrame. You also have to override the default stylesheet's text-align:left. This is easily accomplished by adding text-align:right to the BODY tag within the IFrame. Even better is to simply get rid of the existing alignment styling (which is what Rumen's suggestion does).

    You can simulate this process in no time using the IE developer toolbar. Turn on "Select Element By Click," then click on a RAD editor control and manually add the two HTML attributes in the appropriate places.

    Am I missing something? If this is all that's necessary, it should be easy to create a fix. Maybe someone who actually speaks Arabic can test and provide feedback :-)

    Hi Chris,

    You can programmatically apply text-align to the body element of the editor's IFRAME with the following code:

    <script type="text/javascript">
    function OnClientLoad(editor, args)
        editor.get_document().body.style.textAlign = "right";
    <telerik:RadEditor ID="RadEditor1" runat="server" OnClientLoad="OnClientLoad"></telerik:RadEditor>

    However, this will not make the editor's dialogs to be RTL aligned.

    The full RTL support is logged in our ToDo list for Q3 with high priority. We will make RTL skin which will provide RTL support for the content area as well as for the editor's dialogs.

    Rumen has the right solution, but instead of
    text-align: right !important;



    i tried it, its working fine.
