editing area on MobileFrontend must be set to the language and the direction of the page's content
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Editing area in MobileFronted inherits the lang and the dir of the HTML page.

Instead of this it must be explicitly set to the lang and dir of the page.

This causes the editing window to show with the wrong direction if the UI language is changed.

Is there an easy way to get desired text direction for a page in JS? I know I can get page language easily, but can't find direction among JS variables (unless I use VE variables, but that would mean MF depends on VE).

On a Wikimedia desktop site I'd use $ Unfortunately, this is not desktop, not all sites have ULS installed, and the getDir function is not separated from ULS to a more easily reusable library (it really should be).

If it helps, then you can use the dir and lang values of the #content element - .
