GXT 2.2.4 RTL (Right to Left) Support
I've done some job to add the RTL (Right to Left) support to the GXT 2.2.x.
First i want to thank bentins for his RTL support for GXT 2.1.1. He gave me a good start.
Currently supported browsers are FF 4/5, Chrome. IE9. Rest browsers were not tested. IE9 has some issues with the menu.
All the original themes supports RTL.
The source code and archives for download as well as additional information can be found here http://code.google.com/p/gxt-rtl/
Online demo which shows RTL support for explorer application: Exlorer RTL Demo
Online demo which shows RTL support for desktop application: Desktop RTL Demo
I hope with the community help we can achive stable RTL support for a gxt 2.2.x version.
One question to administration. What should be done to add the RTL support patches to the official GXT sources?

+1 to your question for adding this to the official release!!!
I think you have solved a huge issue in GXT that needs to be batched to the official repo...
Thanks for the effort

Problems woth the gxt rtl
I'm using the gxt rtl version 2.2.4
i found 2 problems:
1. the icon on the buttons are align to the center, and is getting over the text in the button.
2. FillToolItem doesn't work (it suppose to push the next element to the right on the rtl version i guess it suppose to push it to the left, but it seem it doesn't do either of them)
any body know how to solve those problems?

1. What browser do you use? Does this page display correctly for you? http://gxt-rtl.appspot.com/index-rtl.html#buttons
2. Here the FillToolItem is used. Do you see this demo correctly? http://gxt-rtl.appspot.com/index-rtl.html#basictoolbar
