FieldOptions.IsBidiTextSupportedOnUpdate property

Gets or sets the value indicating whether bidirectional text is fully supported during field update or not.

public bool IsBidiTextSupportedOnUpdate { get; set; }


When this property is set to true, additional steps are performed to produce Right-To-Left language (i.e. Arabic or Hebrew) compatible field result during its update.

When this property is set to false and Right-To-Left language is used, correctness of field result after its update is not guaranteed.

The default value is false.


Shows how to use FieldOptions to ensure that field updating fully supports bi-directional text.

Document doc = new Document();
DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);

// Ensure that any field operation involving right-to-left text is performs as expected. 
doc.FieldOptions.IsBidiTextSupportedOnUpdate = true;

// Use a document builder to insert a field that contains the right-to-left text.
FormField comboBox = builder.InsertComboBox("MyComboBox", new[] { "עֶשְׂרִים", "שְׁלוֹשִׁים", "אַרְבָּעִים", "חֲמִשִּׁים", "שִׁשִּׁים" }, 0);
comboBox.CalculateOnExit = true;

doc.Save(ArtifactsDir + "FieldOptions.Bidi.docx");
