direction of text in editbox

I am using VS 2015 Express.

I recently tried to recompile an existing app that features some editboxes.

For some unknown reason the text typed into any of such editbox now goes from right to left. How do I correct this bug?
A couple of thoughts spring to mind.

You left something uninitialised, which in it's former existence just gave you what you expected and you paid no more attention to it.

But now the randomness of uninitialised behaviour caused by just recompiling the code means you're now observing something you don't want.

Does the edit control have a means of controlling LtoR or RtoL layout?
Did you inadvertently choose a locale like arabic which defaults to RtoL?
