#16944 closed Bug (worksforme)

Setting language in inline editor doesn't change language direction in content area.

Reported by: Jakub Ś Owned by:
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: General Version: 4.0
Keywords: Cc:


Steps to reproduce

  1. Open attached sample
  2. Change language to Arabic

Expected result

Toolbar and contentarea change direction to RTL.

Actual result

Only Toolbar changes direction to RTL. Content area stays in LTR mode.

Other details (browser, OS, CKEditor version, installed plugins)

Problem can be worked around by uncommenting this code:

var container = document.getElementById( 'editor1' );
if( languageCode == 'ug' || languageCode == 'fa' || languageCode == 'ar' || languageCode == 'he' )
	container.setAttribute( 'dir', 'rtl');
	container.setAttribute( 'dir', 'ltr');

AFAICS Attached code is the same as in

And it works correctly then. As you're changing the language to Arabic content's language gets also changed.

Also note that content language can be set explicitly!/api/CKEDITOR.config-cfg-contentsLanguage

False Alarm -!/api/CKEDITOR.config-cfg-contentsLangDirection.

All you need is:

editor = CKEDITOR.inline( 'editor1', {
	language: languageCode,
	contentsLangDirection : ( languageCode == 'ug' || languageCode == 'fa' || languageCode == 'ar' || languageCode == 'he' ) ? 'rtl' : 'ltr',

	on: {
		instanceReady: function() {
			// Wait for the editor to be ready to set
			// the language combo.
			var languages = document.getElementById( 'languages' );
			languages.value = this.langCode;
			languages.disabled = false;
