    Hi,

    All the examples show spell checking occurring when a user clicks on a button.

    I have a text box which I would like to be spell checked as the user writes.  If the word does not appear in the dictionary, it underlines the word in red. 

    Is this implemented in RadSpell or is there a way of doing this?

    Thanks.

    Hi J,

    The inline Ajax spellchecker could be used only inside RadEditor. The content area of the editor is an editable IFRAME and allows to highlight the misspelled words by wrapping them inside a <span> tag with inline css and class attributes, e.g.

    <span class="RadEWrongWord" id="RadESpellError_0" style="background-color: #ffff00;">misspelledword</span>

    Unfortunately, there is not a way to highlight the misspelled words inside the textbox / textarea elements because the span wrappers will be visible and displayed as text in them.

    Is there a way to highlight the misspell word as they type within the R.A.D editor?

    Hi Eric,

    The automatic inline spellchecking is currently not supported by RadEditor, because if you type in large document the automatic spellchecking will slow down the browser and the editing.

    Please, note that Firefox offers built-in inline spellchecking and your users could use it instead of the editor's spellchecker.

    Hi Eric,

    I understand your point with the slowness of the editor, but still i need it. So is there a way to acheive that?

    Thanks,

    Hi Sunil,

    We do not support such implementation but I think that you can use the solution provided in this forum thread as a starting point: Editor Keyword Suggestion.
