    in main.cpp add
    Qt Code:
    1. app.setFont(QFont("tahoma")); //or any font for farsi ,arabic ,urdu,hebrew.......etc
    2. QTextCodec::setCodecForCStrings(QTextCodec::codecForName("UTF-8"));
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 
    for layout direction use //for each qwidget intializer
    Qt Code:
    1. this->setLayoutDirection(Qt::RightToLeft);
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode

    I think the OP wants the numeric entry to fill from the right with a forced decimal point like a commercial calculator, not text in a RTL language. For example, entering 123.56 one digit at a time...
    Qt Code:
    1. [ 1]
    2. [ 12]
    3. [ 1.23]
    4. [ 12.35]
    5. [ 123.56]
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 
    Simple right-alignment gets part way there, but the input mask causes issues. There should be a way to use the alignment with a QValidator instead of the mask. Have QValidator::validate() remove any non-digit, insert a decimal two chars from the right (if the string is long enough), and set the editor's string.

    Red face Re: QLineEdit inserting from right to left

    If it was intended as said colleague ChrisW67

    Thus the solution
    QLineEdit=new QLineEdit(this);
    QDoubleValidator *myDblVal = new QDoubleValidator(0, 99999999999999, 2,LineEdit );
    LineEdit->setValidator(myDblVal);
    LineEdit->setAlignment(Qt::AlignRight);
