I believe that this kind of spell checking is not available in the RadEditor for the reasons discussed in this forum thread. As suggested in the final post you can always use FF for the in-line spell checking.

Hi guys,

I just want to add that all major browsers (except Internet Explorer) offer inline spellchecking. I hope that this feature will be implemented by IE developers in one of the next version of this browser.

All the best,

I am curious as to why Telerik is not working on a fix for this. What specifically is the issue with IE 8.0 that makes this not work.

Thanks!

Hi Mike,

This is not an issue in IE8, but a missing feature that the browser creators should implement.

For the time being, we do not plan to provide automatic spellchecking while typing in a textbox or RadEditor, because if you edit large text then this will decrease performance, because the JavaScript code has 10 times slower performance compared to native compiled code. RadEditor also runs multiple content filters on the client that will additionally decrease the performance of the spelling large content.

Kind regards,
Rumen

Hello,

The automatic inline spell-checking service provided by CKEditor is based on a third party paid plug-in.

The only difference between the automatic SCAYT spell-checker of CKEditor and the RadEditor's inline spell-checker is that it is not possible to type when RadEditor is placed in spell-checking mode (http://screencast.com/t/jEFaaXUcqRb). This limitation is due to avoid mangling of the content because the misspelled words are highlighted with HTML tags and styles in HTML mode.

In difference with the browsers' spellcheckers, the inline spell-checker of RadEditor works in all browsers and even in IE6.

Can you please test it and let me know if it works for you, your clients and managers?

Thank you very much for your feedback in advance.

Best regards,
Rumen

RadEditor is not even an option for us and if it was for this project I would have no issues implementing it with our language switches. The product I was referring to is KendoUI and its web editor. This is why I was comparing to ckeditor and google APIs. I know ckeditor's spellcheck is a 3rd party paid addion but that is not the point of the discussion. I was simply pointing out that the solution is possible, cross browser support is already achieved by competing products and should not be a big issue for the kendo team to implement it. I managed to read at least 5 different posts on here about that very issue with people asking for that feature and various admins replying with quite colorful variety of excuses why it can't be done. There is also a vote that was declined and one that is under review which quite honestly would probably take you guys more time to deal with than actually include the feature in the library. I will be more than happy to write a solution once I have some time if you don't have a developer on staff who can use others code as an example to implement similar functionality. As always love Telerik, I am proud of your accomplishments because you are from Sofia and I do get a bit annoyed when I see responses that undermine the company's credibility (not yours in specific).

Hello Sibila,

Thank you for the extensive feedback and the nice words about our company.

I understand your suggestion and the arguments behind it, as it is indeed reasonable to have automated spell checking in all browsers when using our html editors. Fortunately, starting with IE 10 Microsoft's browser already supports this feature out of the box, which means that all modern browser versions (IE, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, etc.) have the functionality integrated and applicable for our RadEditor and Kendo UI editor widget.

For older IE browser versions there are some feasible solutions which require time for development and integration. Relying on third-party open source plugins, on the other hand, is an option which we prefer not to utilize because addressing issues/bugs in third-party software would be hard and cumbersome, not to say impossible in some cases. 

That's the reason why we chose to focus on other features with higher priority than to support older IE versions. I hope that you understand our position and the reasons we made this decision.

Still as you mentioned you have the expertise and can allocate some time to implement a solution, I encourage you to post it in our code library (under the Editor widget category). Once approved, you'll receive Telerik points which can be used as a discount for purchases/updated of our product. Additionally, the implementation will become available to other community members searching for it. 

Kind regards,
Sebastian
