Mobile web language switcher in-modal search magnifying glass not RTL when language RTL
Closed, ResolvedPublic1 Estimated Story Points


As an RTL user accustomed to seeing the search magnifying glass on the righthand side of the screen, when I visit the language switcher modal on the mobile web, then I expect to see the magnifying glass icon on the righthand side of the screen for my visual scan line.

Here's the current behavior. Note that we just addressed a similar thing with search.

Signing off. Checked on desktop FF, Opera, Chrome, Safari; phone iOS 9 Safari, tablet simulator iOS 9 Safari, Samsung Wave II (SamsungMobile), Android 5 Chrome, Android 5 Opera Mini (no compression), UC Browser (no compression) on both orientations (also, LTR continues to look fine in addition to RTL).

<noscript>/compression browsers were out of scope here.

As before RTL-ness for buttons in UC Browser is off (this happens to be the case on Samsung Wave II), but that's for another day - and the button at least continues to show to provide some sort of indicator of what the field is for. Windows Mobile 7.5 IE continues to face problems of garbled rendering on RTL (not tofu, the blocks are scrambled), so that wasn't testable.
