    Is it possible to get the more normal "red underlining of mis-spelled words" within the textbox more or less as you type?  And then allowing right clicking on such a word to cause the dialog to appear instead of having a button to kick off spell checking?

    Thanks,
    Travis

    Hi Travis,

    Thank you for your feature request.

    RadSpell does not offer the requested functionality out-of-the box and it can be implemented only with IFRAME elements which allow content area styling and css based highlighting of the misspelled words.

    The inline Ajax spellchecker of RadEditor offers a similar functionality but you should press a button to start the spellchecker. This is done by design, because in other case if the user edits a very long content the real time spellchecking will decrease the editing performance.

    Is it possible to use AJAX and fire the spell checker on a 10 second interval or something?

    I know I posted a suggestion some time ago stating that a great feature would be to have real time spell checking.

    I have now just sent and email from Hotmail (something I almost never do) and noticed that they have this functionality in their editor... so it is possible.

    Please consider adding this functionality (RealTimeSpellChecker="True") in an upcoming release (preferably Q2 )

    :D

    Hi Chase,

    The implementation is not possible because of the undo / redo functionality of the editor, which is more advanced than this of Hotmail. Our editor offers more features than the Hotmail editor, which offers features like bold, italic and undo / redo.

    To show highlighted words we need to insert HTML which messes up the undo redo of course because the editor is not able to determine any more which
    HTML comes from the user and which comes from some url (the spellchecker). This is the only reason that stops us to impement this nice functionality based on the already implemented spellchecker functionality into the editor.

    In 2008 this same question had been posted and the reply was NO.

    Is it available now? I see something in this: http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/spell/examples/serverside/defaultvb.aspx

    How to get this feature working?

    Hi Alice,

    For the time being, we do not plan to provide automatic spellchecking while typing in RadEditor due to performance issues. If you edit large text then this will decrease the typing / editing performance, because the JavaScript code has 10 times slower performance compared to native compiled code. RadEditor also runs multiple content filters on the client that will additionally decrease the performance when spell checking large content.

    All major browsers (except Internet Explorer) offer their own built-in spellcheckers that perform inline spell checking in the editable elements: textareas, editable iframe and div elements. The content area of RadEditor is editable IFRAME. I hope that this feature will be implemented by IE developers in one of the next version of this browser and RadEditor will support it.

    The misspelled words inside the provided example is red lined not by RadSpell, but by the built-in spellchecker of your browser.


    Kind regards,
