    Is there any example which demonstrates how to create and work with a custom third-party spell checker using Open Office?

    I tried https://github.com/telerik/xaml-sdk/tree/8a76eafd48278d8278b4b61d1c2aeb3c0ac8750d/RichTextBox/NHunspellSpellChecking, but it is not working properly (all words are marked as incorrect). I used en_US.aff and en_US.dic files from en_us.oxt (http://extensions.openoffice.org/en/project/us-english-spell-checking-dictionary).

    Thanks

    One question regarding NHunspellSpellChecking project (and MsWordSpellChecking as well).

    While checking the word with an apostrophe like "I've", the "CheckWordIsCorrect" method is checking only "ve" (instead of "I've"). The apostrophe is treated as a words separator and because of that the "I've" word is marked as incorrect.

    Is there a way to check the full word "I've"?

     

    Thanks,

    Beata

    Hi Beata,

    This is actually known bug in RadRichTextBox's SpellChecker, and is not related specifically to the NHunspellSpellChecking demo. You can subscribe to the item in the feedback portal to get notified about any status changes:
    RichTextBox: Some contracted forms (e.g. they've) are not recognized by the spell checker

    One possible workaround is to manually add the "'ve" word (including the apostrophe) to the dictionary.
