    Hi,

    I checked the demo : http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/editor/examples/spellchecker/defaultcs.aspx
    but when i tried to apply it on my Greek Dictionary it was not working.

    I kept receiving an error, that Phonetic provider is not supported.

    Is it necessary for inline spell check the phonetic provider to be supported?
    Is there any other way to enable inline spell check?

    Regards,
    Eleni

    Hello Eleni,

    You should use your Greek dictionary with the EditDistanceProvider of the spellchecker, e.g.

    <telerik:RadEditor ID="RadEditor1" runat="server">
            <SpellCheckSettings SpellCheckProvider="EditDistanceProvider" ...   />
        </telerik:RadEditor>

    Kind regards,

    Hi Eleni,

    You should also disable the ConvertCharactersToEntities filter, e.g.

    RadEditor1.DisableFilter(EditorFilters.ConvertCharactersToEntities);

    For your convenience I prepared and attached a sample working project where the spellchecker uses a Greek dictionary.

    All the best,

    Hello Eleni,

    The requested Spell Check as you type feature is logged for implementation for the Q2 2011 release.
    Currently to spell check the RadEditor's content you should manually click on the SpellCheck button on the toolbar.

    Hello Eleni,

    So just so I'm clear on this, even though several of the on-line (RadEditor) demos demonstrate the spellcheck as-you-type feature, we will not have access to this until Q2-2011? I've been struggling to get this to work (using Q1-2011) and I couldn't figure out why. Perhaps this would explain a lot. Please confirm.

    Thank you,
    Korosh

    Hi everyone,

    I just want to inform you that the implementation of the "Spell Check as you type" feature was postponed for Q3 2011. Until then you can use the built-in inline spellcheckers of Firefox, Chrome, Safari and Opera which works fine in RadEditor. In IE you can use the built-in spellchecker of RadEditor.

    We plan additional improvements in the current version of the inline Ajax spellchecker for Q3 2010 as well.

    Hi - I don't see any more word about this feature. Has it been cancelled, implemented or postponed further?

    Hi,

    Currently all major browsers (except Internet Explorer) offer their own built-in spellcheckers that perform inline spell checking out-of-the box in the editable elements: textareas, editable iframe and div elements. The content area of RadEditor is an editable IFRAME( or DIV if ContentAreaMode is set to DIV) and the required spell as you type feature is offered out-of-the box by Firefox, Chrome, Safari and Opera. It will be also offered by the upcoming IE10 and for this reason we do not plan to implement such functionality which will decrease the editing of larger content if it is implemented with JavaScript, which is 10 times slower than the native compiled code.

    At present you can use the inline spellchecker of RadEditor in all browsers but you should click the spellcheck button. Another approach is to use the built-in spellchecker of the non IE browsers for inline spellcheck in realtime, and use the RadEditor's spellcheck for IE.
