    I’m having trouble getting the automatic spell checker to work inside a radgridview column.

    Here is a simplified version of my grid:

    <telerik:RadGridView Grid.Row="1" ItemsSource="{Binding Path=Calls, Mode=TwoWay}" AutoGenerateColumns="False"
            SelectedItem="{Binding Path=SelectedCall, Mode=TwoWay}" CanUserInsertRows="True" CanUserDeleteRows="True"
            AlternationCount="2" Name="CallsGrid"
     <telerik:GridViewDataColumn Header="Notes" telerik:RadGridViewSpellCheckHelper.IsSpellCheckingEnabled="True"
      DataMemberBinding="{Binding CallNotes, Mode=TwoWay}" MinWidth="100" Width="*" >

    The spell checker comes up after I move out of the notes field and works as expected, however after the spell checker is done and has the correct notes string, it does NOT update the field with the corrected string.

    I have noticed the same behavior in the online demos for WPF spellchecker (Spell Checking RadGridView) the manual triggering of spell checking column works however the automatic spell checking column does not update the field with the correct values.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Hello Laura,

    While Automatic Spell Checking with RadGridView works fine for Silverlight, this is a known issue for WPF. Unfortunately we cannot commit a fix for any date or release for now. As a workaround you could use the Manual Spell Checking.

    Sorry for the inconvenience caused. Do not hesitate to contact us if any other issues arise.
