    Hi There

     I have a website with multiple languages on of them is arabic which is right to left .  

    I have many text boxes and i could manage to set the cursor on the right via css .

    The problem is i want the user to start writting in arabic directly without the need to change the writting language from keyboard.

    are there any way to simulate the left alt + shift click which is used to change to arabic or any code to change the direction of the cursor in the textboxes automatically in arabic page .


    i have read many posts before but none of them is useful for me i don't need localization soliution all i need is a way to change the writting language automatically if there is one .
