Text ordering in Qml Apps do not respect QGuiApplication.layoutDirection as base direction

    XMLWordPrintable

    Details

      Description

      With the following qml:

              Text {
                  text: "مصر yooo مصر yooo."
              }
      

      and cpp:

      app.setLayoutDirection(Qt::LeftToRight);
      

      The rendered output looks like this:

      According to the documentation, the QGuiApplication.layoutDirection can be used to explicitly set base direction for the text (a.k.a. embedding level in BiDi spec). The rendered output acts as if Qt::LayoutDirectionAuto was set. With Qt::LeftToRight, the expected string should be rendered in reverse order and the dot should be on the right side.

      From https://doc.qt.io/qt-6/qt.html#LayoutDirection-enum:

      When LayoutDirectionAuto is used in conjunction with text layouting, it will imply that the text directionality is determined from the content of the string to be layouted.
