    Are there any plans to add the Ignore and Change all options to the spell check dialog (would be used when performing a spell check with the "Check all words at once" option)?  This was asked in an older thread (over a year ago here:  http://www.telerik.com/community/forums/silverlight/spellchecker/spell-checking-ui.aspx).

    If these options will not be added anytime soon, is there a way to add these ourselves to the existing dialog?

    Thanks

    Hi Randy,

    Thank you for your question.

    Could you please clarify what functionality exactly you are interested in: RadSpellChecker or the built-in spell checking of RadRichTextBox? Also if it is RadSpellChecker, what controls you would like to check the spelling of?

    Looking forward to your reply.

    Hi Vasil,

    My original question was targeted for the spell check feature of RadRichTextBox but I would think it applies to any of the spell check logic that displays the spell check dialog (see the attached images for what I mean).  The dialog from the ASP.NET control contains these two options but the Silverlight version does not.  These are options that most spell check features currently have today and most users expect to see them available.

    Thanks,
    Randy

    Hi Randy,

    Thank you for the explanation.

    We have these feature requests in our product backlog. Unfortunately they have not been scheduled yet because of their relatively lower priority, so currently we cannot give you any timeframe when they would be ready. Otherwise, our public API provides the ability to implement them on your end.

    I hope this helps. Do not hesitate to contact us if you have other questions.

    Hi Vasil,

    Can you point me to the API documentation that explains how I can implement these options myself?  Maybe I missed it, but I've looked at various topics in the documentation and on the forums but I haven't seen the API that discusses how this can be done.

    Thanks,
    Randy

    Hello Randy,

    Thank you for the follow up.

    Unfortunately, there is no documentation available for this topic, as this is not an existing feature. All UI that the control uses (dialogs and pop-ups) can be replaced by custom user-defined ones. In order to do so, you can download the source of the controls from your account and use a modification of the default dialog as custom. This will be achieved by simply marking your implementation with the [CustomSpellCheckingDialog] attribute.

    The ChangeAll functionality can be achieved by slightly modifying the Change functionality to iterate through all occurrences of the current spell-checked word. In this regard, it may be easier to pass the RichTextBox being spell-checked to the dialog (e.g. as a property), so that you can use the document, its positions, etc. We will consider adding this functionality on our end in the near future. When it comes to the Ignore functionality, we are not sure what will be the best way to implement it, that is why we cannot offer any suggestions in this regard.

    All the best,
    Vasil
