    I have a quesiton about the dictionary used in Telerik spellchecker, is it compatible or shared with MS WPF spellcheck
    feature? My problem is that part of my application will use MS WPF spellcheck and part will use Telerik's, so we hope
    that the dictionaries can be shared through the application. If the answer is yes, can you give a little details for the

    Hi Henry,

    Can you please share some more details on your application logic? For example, what will be spell-checked using MS SpellCheck and what using RadSpellChecker? Also, are you planning to use RadRichTextBox in your application or you wish to spell-check other controls with RadSpellChecker?

    Overall, RadSpellChecker does support custom dictionaries and this MSDN article states that so does SpellCheck. The only inconsistency is that, as stated in the documentation of the control, RadSpellChecker uses .TDF files, as opposed to SpellCheck.CustomDictionaries which requires the dictionary to be in a .LEX format. If you are able to come-up with a way to convert one to the other, you should be able to plug the same dictionary to both spellchecking methods.
