    Winforms RTL sizing and positioning issues

    Hey guys. Im developing a C# software on visual studio 2015. One of the forms is a fixed non sizable form that has arabic text and needs to be rtl(right to left). The problem is that as soon as i run the app the sizes and positions of most of the controls including the form itself changes drastically. This is really confusing me and i tried to play with all the settings and used different combinations and what works on a form doesnt work on the other and problems keep arising. I even tried to use TableLayout. Is there something i am missing out? Even the english form has slight and minor differences when run.

    Then you should have posted in the C# forum. I've asked the mods to move this thread.

    Can you provide a screenshot of your form in the designer with the Document Outline window open so we can clearly see the control hierarchy? It might take a bit of experimentation but I'd expect that by manipulating a TableLayoutPanel (which you appear to be using already) and a FlowLayoutPanel, you could get it to behave.

    As for the difference between design and actually running the app, I suspect that it's using GDI to draw in one case and GDI+ in the other.
