The default language input for most users of the web is left-to-right. However, the Right-to-Left (RTL) functionality enables you to properly render languages, such as Hebrew and Arabic, thus making your app a truly global one and helping your localization efforts.

The Kendo UI for jQuery TextArea control comes with built-in right-to-left (RTL) support and offers right-to-left rendering.

This demo shows how to set the TextArea RTL functionality by including the kendo.rtl.[min].css file and wrapping the DatePicker in a div element with the k-rtl class.

This TextBox example is part of a unique collection of hundreds of jQuery demos, with which you can see all Kendo UI for jQuery components and their features in action. View the source code of the demos from the library or directly adapt, and edit them and their theme appearance in Kendo UI for jQuery Dojo or ThemeBuilder.
