Right To Left iPhone UI

Neo Official - Fri, 06/08/2010 - 2:36pm
Peace be upon you.

I have been working on Arabic Apps for iPhone, sometimes I need to do things quickly rather than making the whole UI components from the beginning, I came up with good trick to enable me doing Right To Left UIs with minimum effort, it is not perfect but it is working just fine.
There is something in Core Graphics called Affine transformations , this set of function all you doing anything related to image manipulation, as the UI elements turned to be image at the end, the property "transform", it has the typical 2d Array of image manipulation

Here is what I have been doing.
