Property Value

Exceptions

The value assigned to the property is not a valid member of the RightToLeft enumeration.

Examples

The following code example uses the GetForm method to determine if a MainMenu is currently parented to the form. If the call in the example code to GetForm does not return null, the code then clones the menu structure of the MainMenu using the CloneMenu method. The example code then sets the RightToLeft property to RightToLeft.Yes on the new copy of the MainMenu to create a MainMenu that can be used for languages that support right to left text. This example requires that you have a MainMenu created that is named mainMenu1.

void CloneMyMenu()
{
   // Determine if mainMenu1 is currently hosted on the form.
   if ( mainMenu1->GetForm() != nullptr )
   {
      // Create a copy of the MainMenu that is hosted on the form.
      MainMenu^ mainMenu2 = mainMenu1->CloneMenu();

      // Set the RightToLeft property for mainMenu2.
      mainMenu2->RightToLeft = ::RightToLeft::Yes;
   }
}
public void CloneMyMenu()
{
   // Determine if mainMenu1 is currently hosted on the form.
   if(mainMenu1.GetForm() != null)
   {
      // Create a copy of the MainMenu that is hosted on the form.
      MainMenu mainMenu2 = mainMenu1.CloneMenu();
      // Set the RightToLeft property for mainMenu2.
      mainMenu2.RightToLeft = RightToLeft.Yes;
   }
}

Public Sub CloneMyMenu()
    ' Determine if mainMenu1 is currently hosted on the form.
    If (mainMenu1.GetForm() IsNot Nothing) Then
        ' Create a copy of the MainMenu that is hosted on the form.
        Dim mainMenu2 As MainMenu = mainMenu1.CloneMenu()
        ' Set the RightToLeft property for mainMenu2.
        mainMenu2.RightToLeft = RightToLeft.Yes
    End If
End Sub

Remarks

This property enables your menus to support languages that are written from right to left. When this property is set to RightToLeft.Yes, the menu item text will be displayed from right to left instead of the default left to right method.

Note

For more information about how enabling right-to-left alignment affects Windows Forms controls, see the RightToLeft property.
