Hello, we have the latest version of the DNN radEditor installed on DNN 4.9. with all default values set in the config.xml file, for some reason, when using the spellchecker, the suggestions window ALWAYS appears at the bottom of the browser window, instead of underneath the misspelled word. This only appears to happen this way in IE 7 - Firefox 3, the window appears ABOVE the misspelled word. Does anyone know why this is? Is it a bug in the CSS of the newest release?

Thanks
Dan

Does any one have any pointers? There's little to no documentation on how the spell app works or how it is laid out, so I was hoping maybe someone had seen this before and solved it....

Hi Dan,

Are you using the default DNN skin? This seems like an issue with the page doctype. The RadEditor control is designed to work in XHTML paged (having a XHTML doctype). The default DNN skin in 4.9 has a doctype so you should have no problems there. However, previous versions of DNN and some custom skins do not have a doctype, which will force the browser to render the page in backwards-compatible or "quirks" mode.This could be the cause for the wrong position of the spellcheck suggestions box.

If your skin does not have a doctype, try adding one (http://www.dotnetnuke.com/Community/Blogs/tabid/825/EntryId/1226/using-Skin-level-DocTypes.aspx) and see if it fixes the problem.

Kind regards,

We already have that set, it makes no difference. This seems to be an issue with the CSS styles and the RadEditor+RadSpell for DNN. I may need to open a ticket with telerik if no one in the community is experiencing this.

Thanks
