In some cases it is necessary to use right to left alignment. RTL support is provided by using enableRTL property. In RTL mode when there is more than one content (image/text, image/image) in Split Button, then the content is aligned in right to left format. For example, when text is in left and image is in right position, after applying right to left alignment these position are interchanged.
