Slider: handle is not mirrored in RTL mode

Should slider handle start from right in rtl mode? And arrow keyboard support should be reversed also. I'd like to provide a fix if this confirmed as a open defect, thanks!

Thanks for the comment, and after looking through html rendering spec in w3c, It said that- "''...with the lowest value on the right if the 'direction' property on this element has a computed value of 'rtl', and on the left otherwise...''", so I think it's better to mirror slider in rtl mode, right?

Test case:, <body> in testcase has attribute "dir=rtl"

this issue may require large rewrite of positioning and input routines, so there is no local solution.

you may use modified slider with option: direction=true, which inverts scale from [0..100] to [100..0].

I'm not sure what you're talking about. There is no direction option.

I agree with Rock. The Slider handle should start from right in RTL mode. This is the expected behavior for the Arabic/Hebrew users or any RTL speaking countries.

I've proposed some code changes to handle this issue here I hope you take a look and review it.
