 isn't there something that works better?

Not exactly fulsome in your thanks, are you?

I have a GUI set to RTL, and I want to create a certain input that will be ltr.

A simple way to do it :

#include <EditConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

$hGui = GUICreate("", 260, 100, -1, -1, -1, BitOr($WS_EX_LAYOUTRTL, $WS_EX_NOINHERITLAYOUT))

GUICtrlCreateLabel("Username", 15, 15, 80, 20, $SS_RIGHT)

$id_Username = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 80, 10, 100, 20) ; LTR
; $id_Username = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 80, 10, 100, 20, BitOr($ES_RIGHT, $ES_AUTOHSCROLL)) ; RTL

$id_OK = GUICtrlCreateButton("OK", 190, 10, 60, 50)

GUISetState()

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, $id_OK
            GUIDelete($hGui)
            ExitLoop
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Edit: added syntax for both kind of Input controls (LTR or RTL), also added $SS_RIGHT for the label control.

Excellent work!

Tests show that OP will have a little problem, because probably all his Input controls are already RTL and he wants to add now an LTR input control.

So changing the extended style of his RTL GUI from $WS_EX_LAYOUTRTL to BitOr($WS_EX_LAYOUTRTL, $WS_EX_NOINHERITLAYOUT) will solve his LTR issue... but will create some issues in his RTL Input and RTL Label controls which are already designed.

Though I indicated a possible syntax to use them in the precedent script ($SS_RIGHT for labels,  BitOr($ES_RIGHT, $ES_AUTOHSCROLL) for RTL input controls), little issues may still be annoying (bad cursor position while filling RTL input controls, Del and Backspace keys will be a bit hard to handle)

If there is only one LTR input control and many RTL input controls in his RTL Gui, then the following script may be more useful, because OP will be allowed to fill his LTR input control (please note the position of the cursor while it is filled and the "difficulty" to use Del & Backspace keys) but at least, he won't find any problem in all his RTL input controls (you can check that in the following script by switching the commented line of the $id_Username control)

#include <EditConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

$hGui = GUICreate("", 260, 100, -1, -1, -1, $WS_EX_LAYOUTRTL)

GUICtrlCreateLabel("Username", 15, 15, 80, 20)

$id_Username = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 80, 10, 100, 20, BitOr($ES_RIGHT, $ES_AUTOHSCROLL)) ; LTR
; $id_Username = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 80, 10, 100, 20) ; RTL

$id_OK = GUICtrlCreateButton("OK", 190, 10, 60, 50)

GUISetState()

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, $id_OK
            GUIDelete($hGui)
            ExitLoop
    EndSwitch
WEnd

It should have been great to use the code of the 1st script for the LTR input control and the code of this 2nd script for all the RTL input controls !

Good luck Mateo

@Mateo : you're welcome.

@Melba23 : if both precedent scripts aren't enough, here is a 3rd script, which follows your idea to place the LTR input control inside a child window (i.e. the link you provided to Mateo). I succeeded doing it in a simple way, by creating a $WS_CHILD window (and not a $WS_EX_MDICHILD which would steal the focus unless we register etc...)

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

$hGui = GUICreate("", 300, 100, -1, -1, -1, $WS_EX_LAYOUTRTL)

$id_OK = GUICtrlCreateButton("OK", 220, 10, 60, 50)

GUICtrlCreateLabel("Username (RTL)", 10, 15, 85, 20)
$id_Username = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 100, 10, 100, 20) ; RTL

GUICtrlCreateLabel("Location (LTR)", 10, 45, 85, 20)

$hGui2 = GUICreate("", 100, 20, 100, 40, $WS_CHILD, BitOr($WS_EX_NOINHERITLAYOUT, $WS_EX_CONTROLPARENT), $hGui)
$id_Location = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 0, 0, 100, 20) ; LTR

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hGui)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hGui2)

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, $id_OK
            GUIDelete($hGui)
            GUIDelete($hGui2)
            ExitLoop
    EndSwitch
WEnd

In this 3rd script, $WS_EX_CONTROLPARENT is applied to the $WS_CHILD window, which allows to Tab through all Controls (Parent & Child) fluently. The fact that the Child window has exactly the same size as its inner Input control prevents the "AutoIt feature" to drag the child window here & there.

Please note how the cursor is now "well-placed" when we fill any of the Input Controls (RTL or LTR). Also the Del & BackSpace keys behave normally while we fill any of the Input Controls (which wasn't the case in the 2 precedent scripts)

So, bye-bye $SS_RIGHT, $ES_RIGHT and all the #Include gang... while $WS_EX_NOINHERITLAYOUT is still here :)
