We are using the built in MOSS spell checker to check spelling for all controls on the page which includes text boxes as well as rad editor controls. The checker reads the html in the rad editors and thus picks up lots of html coding that it thinks are spelling errors.

Since the rad editors have their own spell checkers which work fine, we want to configure the MOSS spell checker to skip any Rad editor controls. I read here: http://www.codedigest.com/Articles/Sharepoint/231_How_to_skip_SharePoint_spell_check_for_an_input_control.aspx
that you can add an attribute (excludeFromSpellCheck="true") to a control to have the MOSS spell checker skip it but I have tried this and the MOSS spell checker is still catching html code in the Rad Editor control and reporting it as a spelling error.

Any ideas how I can prevent the MOSS spell checker from checking Rad Editors while still letting it check text boxes on the page?

Thanks,
-Carl

Hello Carl,

Unfortunately there is no way to configure the MOSS spell to skip the RadEditors on the page.

Hi,

We are also facing the same problem in our application. We have a page where we have text boxes and rad control. We were using the MOSS spell check and first time when we click the spell check it excludes the Rad editor but once a post back happens then it starts including the Rad editor. 
1. Is there any way where we can use the same spell check which rad editor uses to check the other controls in the page?
2. Make the MOSS spell check to work for the Rad Editor

Thanks in advance

Hello Michael,

1. Is there any way where we can use the same spell check which rad editor uses to check the other controls in the page? - In general there is a way of using the spellchecker in the RadEditor. How ever this is a difficult task and it will require a lot of client javascript code.

2. Make the MOSS spell check to work for the Rad Editor - you can try to find what is the method which is executed on the MOSS spell and overwirte it. Use the GetText method to get the editor content as plain text http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet/editor/gettext.html.

Hi Stanimir,

We're now using version 5.8 of the radeditor and it seems that the MOSS spell checker doesn't look at the radeditor content at all.
However, when I deactivate the feature of the radeditor to replace all Rich HTML fields, the MOSS spell checker does check its own MOSS Rich HTML fields.

Is this correct behaviour?

(The RAD spell checker works fine btw)

Thanks in advance.

Hello David Slot,

The MOSS spell checker does not look at the RadEditor for MOSS. This is the default behavior. RadEditor for MOSS has spell checker integrated in it.
