    Rad spell is not triggering RadTextBoxChanged on  RadTextBox.
     I am using the updateDisplayValue on OnClientDialogClosed.
    Please let me know if you need more info.

    Browsers do not fire the "changed" event for textboxes, when their value is updated programmatically with Javasctript by using the textbox' value property. This is the reason why you need to call updateDisplayValue() explicitly after the spell check is finished.

    You can fire the event manually, but in this case you will not be able to cancel it via the event arguments. Instead, you will have the previous value at your disposal and set it back with textBoxInstance.set_value().
