    I have not included the AjaxSpellchecker in my EditorToolGroup. Also I tried removing the httphandler SpellCheckHandler.axd from my web.config.

    But whenever I open my document (xml file ) to edit in RadEditor, it underlines all the xml names/attributes with red color like spell checking.

    I don't want any kind of spell check as well as those red underlines.

    How do I achieve this?

    Hello Manasi,

    The curly red underline is a result of the browser spellchecker that can be disabled by using the spellcheck attribute

    Here you are an example how to set it for the RadEditor content area using OnClientLoad event:
    <telerik:RadEditor runat="server" ID="RadEditor1" OnClientLoad="OnClientLoad"></telerik:RadEditor>
        function OnClientLoad(sender, args) {
            sender.get_contentArea().setAttribute("spellcheck", "false");

    Do you need help with upgrading your ASP.NET AJAX, WPF or WinForms projects? Check the Telerik API Analyzer and share your thoughts.
