We are in Saudi Arabia and we use Arabic calendar. We use database application and view date as text like that '25-09-1432' In windows xp this text appear '25-09-1432' if you use left to right direction and appear '1432-09-25' if you use right to left direction The problem in win 7 now this text appear '25-09-1432' even direction left to right or right to left; as you now in Arabic language the direction from right to left so we need this text appear like that '1432-09-25'. Thank you for reading. NotesYou can test this problem in notepad application.When use underscore('_') instead thane hyphen('-') the text appear in a good way. But we need this text appear with hyphen.
