21 May 20212 minutes to read

SfDateRangePicker supports Right to left rendering and all the date picker elements rendering direction will be changed.

RTL rendering ways

Right to left rendering can be switched in the following ways:

Wrapping the SfDateRangePicker with Directionality widget

The SfDateRangePicker supports changing the layout direction of the widget in the right-to-left direction by using the Directionality widget and set the textDirection property as TextDirection.rtl.

@override
Widget build(BuildContext context) {
  return Scaffold(
    appBar: AppBar(
      title: Text('Right to Left'),
    ),
    body: Directionality(
      textDirection: TextDirection.rtl,
      child: SfDateRangePicker(
        view: DateRangePickerView.month,
      ),
    ),
  );
}

RTL Date Range Picker

Changing the locale to RTL languages

To change the date range picker rendering direction from right to left, change the locale to any of the RTL languages such as Arabic, Persian, Hebrew, Pashto, and Urdu.

@override
Widget build(BuildContext context) {
  return MaterialApp(
      localizationsDelegates: [
        GlobalMaterialLocalizations.delegate,
        GlobalWidgetsLocalizations.delegate,
      ],
      supportedLocales: <Locale>[
        Locale('en'),
        Locale('ar'),
        // ... other locales the app supports
      ],
      locale: Locale('ar'),
      home: Scaffold(
        body: SfDateRangePicker(
            //...
            ),
      ));
}
