[Gambas-user] Right-to-left support in GTK OR QT

If I work on an environment that is right to left (Hebrew)
Suppose I put on the TEXTBOX control form
It puts it from right to left
And all the controls I put on the form are right to left

The problem:
1. It is very inconvenient to write software whose IDE is right to left
2. I need to put one control TEXTBOX that is behaving from right to left and another control that is behaving from left to right

My intention as there is an option in HTML on each control to decide if it is:

<DIR = RTL> or <DIR = LTR>

And in VisualStudio each control has a property called:

The thing is that in any software it is necessary to involve some of the controls from right to left and some from left to right

I hope I was able to explain the matter

Many thanks
