I've tried changing the default spellchecker to use an en-GB dictionary I downloaded via another forum post on here, but I'm running into difficulty.

If I set the language property to "en-GB", I'd expect it to use the en-GB dictionary in app_data, but instead it still looks for the en-US dictionary instead.

If I add a languages block, either in the aspx, or in the toolsfile, or programmatically, and add "en-GB", "UK English" as a new spellcheck language, I get prompted to pick it when I click the spellcheck icon, as opposed to just defaulting to it as the only dictionary available, but at least this proves the new dictionary works.

What I want is for the UK english dictionary to be the default, and to spellcheck using it without asking for the user to choose a dictionary.  I'm almost tempted to edit the accompanying scripts to see if I can avoid this, but I hope I'm just doing it wrong.  Any ideas?

The other option is to just give up, and expect our users to pick it every time, but I'm sure they will complain about that.

Hi Andrew,

Please, set the DictionaryLanguage property and this will solve the problem, e.g.

<telerik:RadEditor runat="server" id="RadEditor1">
    <SpellCheckSettings DictionaryLanguage="en-GB" /> </telerik:RadEditor>
