    Is there a way to disable the add to dictionary button from the dialog created in the WinControls RadSpellChecker?

    Hello David,

    Thank you for writing.

    You can subscribe to the SpellingFormShowing event and hide or disable the "Add To Dictionary" button accessing the respective control via the Form.Controls collection:
    private void radSpellChecker1_SpellingFormShowing(object sender, SpellingFormShowingEventArgs e)
    {
        //e.SpellingForm.Controls["buttonAddToDictionary"].Visible = false;
        e.SpellingForm.Controls["buttonAddToDictionary"].Enabled = false;
    }

    I hope this information helps. Should you have further questions, I would be glad to help.

    Hello,

    How about the one that displayed in the context menu when you choose AutoSpellCheck? Is there a way to disable the 'add to dictionary' menu?

    Hello, Machiko, 

    Thank you for writing.  

    Here is a sample code snippet demonstrating how to disable the "Add to Dictionary" item in the context menu when a RadSpellChecker is used to auto spellchecked the RadTextBox:
    public RadForm1()
    {
        InitializeComponent();
     
        this.radSpellChecker1.AutoSpellCheckControl = this.radTextBox1;
     
        TextBoxSpellChecker textSpellChecker = this.radSpellChecker1.GetControlSpellChecker(typeof(RadTextBox)) as TextBoxSpellChecker;
        if (textSpellChecker != null)
        {
            textSpellChecker.DropDownMenu.PopupOpening += DropDownMenu_PopupOpening;
        }
    }
     
    private void DropDownMenu_PopupOpening(object sender, CancelEventArgs args)
    {
        RadDropDownMenu menu = sender as RadDropDownMenu;
        foreach (RadItem item in menu.Items)
        {
            if (item.Text.Contains("Add to Dictionary"))
            {
                item.Visibility = Telerik.WinControls.ElementVisibility.Collapsed;
            }
        }
    }

    I hope this information helps. Should you have further questions I would be glad to help.
