try this.

B4X:
Sub myTextView_TextChanged (OldText As String, NewText As String)
dim no as NativeObject = Me  
no.RunMethod("SetToRight:",Array(myTextView))

End Sub

#If OBJC

-(void) SetToRight: (UITextField *)myTextField
{
[myTextField setBaseWritingDirection:UITextWritingDirectionRightToLeft forRange:[myTextField textRangeFromPosition:[myTextField beginningOfDocument] toPosition:[myTextField endOfDocument]]];
}


#End if
I recommend to put Dim no as NativeObject = me in Process_Globals
