This problem appears when you apply the dir="rtl" on widget level.

You'll need to attach your actual test case. You claim there's a bug with programmatic creation of DateTextBox in test_Dialog.html, yet that file does not programmatically create a DateTextBox.

Probably your test is invalid because you didn't specify dir as a parameter to the DateTextBox constructor. The dir attribute in the markup is irrelevant for programmatic creation.

Herein the modification I made inside the file. Just added dir="rtl" for the widjit with id="dialog1".

	<div dir="rtl" id="dialog1" data-dojo-type="dijit/Dialog" data-dojo-props='title:"First Dialog",
			onFocus:function(){ console.log("user focus handler") },
			onBlur:function(){ console.log("user blur handler") },
			execute:function(args){ console.log("submitted w/args:\n" + dojo.toJson(args, true)); }'>
		<div id="intro" style="width:30em;">Introductory information spoken by screen reader if aria-describedby is
		added to the declaration of dialog above with value equal to the id of the container element for this text. This technique
		will work in Dojo 1.4. </div>
		<table style="position:relative;">
				<td><label for="name">Name: </label></td>
				<td><input id="name" data-dojo-type="dijit/form/TextBox" data-dojo-props='type:"text", name:"name" '/></td>
				<td><label for="loc">Location: </label></td>
				<td><input id="loc" data-dojo-type="dijit/form/TextBox" data-dojo-props='type:"text", name:"loc" '/></td>
				<td><label for="date">Date: </label></td>
				<td><input id="date" data-dojo-type="dijit/form/DateTextBox" data-dojo-props='type:"text", name:"date" '/></td>
				<td><label>Time: </label></td>
				<td><div id="time" data-dojo-type="dijit/InlineEditBox" data-dojo-props='editor:"dijit.form.TimeTextBox", editorParams:{type:"text", name:"time"}, width:"100px", style:"width:100px;"'></div></td>
				<td><label for="desc">Description: </label></td>
				<td><input id="desc" data-dojo-type="dijit/form/TextBox" data-dojo-props='type:"text", name:"desc" '/></td>
				<td colspan="2" style="text-align:center;">
					<button id="ok" data-dojo-type="dijit/form/Button" data-dojo-props='type:"submit"'>OK</button></td>

Specifying dir on widjit level should be propagated to the grammatically created widjit. I understand that the current code of the widjit doesn't support that but I think the following code could fix it:

		buildRendering : function() {

			var myDijit = dijit.byId(this);
			var node = dojo.byId(;
				if (node.dir == "rtl") {
					myDijit.set("dir", "rtl");

Where is this programmatically created DateTextBox you keep talking about?

Anyway, as I wrote in your other ticket, programmatically created widgets don't read their parameters from HTML markup, and this is intended behavior.
