Table Object: Right Alignment

Hello Team,
We are using Aspose.Words to generate word and PDF reports.
We are using table, text, label objects on the report.
When orientation is set to RTL, text in the report gets entirely right aligned, but this is not the case with Table object.
Table object remains at the left hand side of the report, though the text inside the table gets right aligned.
Attached are both word and PDF output for your reference.
Best Regards,

Hello Dwarika,

Thanks for your request. If you would like to set table alignment for your table to right, you can try using the following code:

// Open document.
Document doc = new Document("Aspose+Copy.doc");
// Get collection of rows
NodeCollection rows = doc.GetChildNodes(NodeType.Row, true);
// Loop through all rows
foreach (Row row in rows)
    // Set Alignment to right
    row.RowFormat.Alignment = RowAlignment.Right;

Best regards,

Hello Team,
We are setting left indent to move table object to right side. like following

documentBuilder.RowFormat.LeftIndent = rightIndent;

will this solve purpose?


Thanks for your inquiry. If you would like to build RTL table and move it left, then LeftIndent should work for you. Here is code example, which shows how to builder RTL table.

// Create Documentbuilder object, which will be used to buil th edocument.
DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder();
// Configure builder to build RTL docuemnt.
builder.PageSetup.Bidi = true;
builder.ParagraphFormat.Bidi = true;
builder.RowFormat.Bidi = true;
builder.Font.Bidi = true;
// Specify the font and font size to be used for the right-to-left text.
builder.Font.NameBi = "Andalus";
// Specify the locale so Microsoft Word recognizes this text as Arabic - Saudi Arabia.
// For the list of locale identifiers see http://www.microsoft.com/globaldev/reference/lcid-all.mspx
builder.Font.LocaleIdBi = 1025;
// Set let indent of table, since our table is RTL indent will be added at right.
builder.RowFormat.LeftIndent = 150;
// Build table.
builder.CellFormat.Borders.LineStyle = LineStyle.Single;
// Insert some Arabic text.
// Save output document

But, you should note, that Aspose.Words does not support RTL upon rendering yet. So such approach will not work if you save output document as PDF, XPS or print document using Aspose.Words.
Best regards.
