oracle.i18n.servlet.localesource
Class LocaleSource.Alignment

java.lang.Object
  extended by oracle.i18n.servlet.localesource.LocaleSource.Alignment

All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable
Enclosing class:
LocaleSource

public static class LocaleSource.Alignment
extends Object
implements Serializable

The LocaleSource.Alignment class represents the alignment of text elements.

To set the text alignment in HTML, specify the attribute align="left" or align="right" in HTML tags. The value is effective, even if you switch the writing direction in HTML from LTR to RTL. As a result, you see text elements in opposite alignment in RTL mode. To avoid this issue, use this parameter value class to specify either LocaleSource.Alignment.START or LocaleSource.Alignment.END in place of the left or right attributes. GDK automatically detects the writing direction to return the appropriate alignment value.

Note this class is a constant value class, so this will not determine the alignment.
