    We would like to allow in-house users to save special terms to the dictionary.

    However, we would like to block outside (anonymous) users from doing the same thing.

    Is there a way to toggle the "Add to Dictionary" function on/off through server code (ASPX)?

    Hello,

    You can disable the "add to custom" function by setting the spell property AllowAddCustom to false in your code.

    One week after purchasing the product, I continue to find amazing capabilities and many advanced, customizable features that I need.

    Thanks for a prompt response, and your patience as I learn to navigate through the extensive documentation.

    Hi,

    I went through the guidelines that were given here at : http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet/editor/customizingradspell.html

    I want to disable the add to dictionary button. So i needed to find the ConfigFile.xml which according to the above link was supposed to be at editor's /RadControls/Editor/ConfigFile.xml

    However I was not able to find this file in the entire file system.

    Please guide me to the exact location of this file.

    Thanks

    Hi Vishesh,

    This help article applies to RadSpell Classic which has a config file. RadSpell for ASP.NET AJAX does not have a configfile, because it could be configured using themes.

    To hide the Add To Dictionary option in RadSpell for ASP.NET AJAX you should set the AllowAddCustom="false", e.g.

    <telerik:RadSpell ID="RadSpell1" runat="server" AllowAddCustom="false" />

    Sincerely yours,

    Hi,

    According to your previous post, you said that we should customize radspell using a line like this: 
    <telerik:RadSpell ID="RadSpell1" runat="server" AllowAddCustom="false" />

    However we are using radeditor directly and not radspell .

    Please suggest how to customize radeditor for this functionality.

    Thanks

    Hello vishesh,

    You could use the SpellCheckingSettings section of RadEditor's declaration

    <telerik:RadEditor ID="Editor1" runat="server">
        <SpellCheckSettings AllowAddCustom="false" />
    </telerik:RadEditor>

    I have radspell throughout the site. Is there a way to disable this feature without setting allowaddcustom to false for every single radspell?

    Hi Sean,

    You can use ASP.NET Theme to configure multiple RadSpell / RadEditor controls from a single skin file. See this help article for more information: Using Themes.
