    Question Flip render direction of a window and all of its child control?

    I know Delphi/Lazarus already support that through BiDiMode, ParentBiDiMode,.. etc

    Is this possible with VB6 & APIs or do I have to manually write the code to get it done?!

    Can you express clearer what you are asking?
    Do you mean, for example, all the letters to appear flipped? (along with everything else)

    I know I can use RightToLeft property but that does not flip the directions/positions of the form and all its controls!

    OK, but you should describe your goal, why you want to do that?

    I already showed that flipping the letters makes no sense, unless the user is going to watch the screen in a mirror.

    Is your goal to support RightToLeft languages?

    Yes.
    I do have more than one application which are multi languages but with right to left language I need also to flip the positions of the controls and the direction of writing not mirroring the letters!

    Practically you have to do it manually.
