Localization : set RightToLeft property for all textboxes in the application

I currently set the application culture in appsetting via
Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentUICulture = new CultureInfo(culture);
This forces the application to use the appropriate resource file for the selected culture.

However currently I need to go to each individual winform and set the RightToLeft property to Yes for cultures that the script is written from right to left.

Is there a way to globally set all inputs such as textboxes to have their  RightToLeft  property?

I don't think this can be done with winforms. This feature however comes out of the box with WPF: when you specify a local, your controls will have the correct RightToLeft behavior without any additional work.

if you are stuck with winforms you can still look for 3rd party controls which handles this feature:
