Hello I find the spell checking function provided in Telerik controls to be confusing.   Is there an example of using the spell checker against standard text boxes in a winforms application?   All the documentation that I have found so far only refers to RichTextEditor input, or else RichTextbox, which I understand to be deprecated, but I need to spell check a standard windows textbox.   I also need it to be able to check uppercase as a option.

Thanks

Hello Emmanuel,

You can use the RadSpellCheker for the regular textbox. Detailed in formation is available here: Spell check as you type.

I hope this helps. Should you have any other questions do not hesitate to ask.

Thank you Dimitar, that's straightforward enough, but I cant find how to make it check uppercase, as per my original question.

Hi Emmanuel,

I am sorry, I forgot about this. To make it work with uppercase letters you need to set the following property: 
var spellchecker = this.radSpellChecker1.GetControlSpellChecker(typeof(RadTextBox)) as TextBoxSpellChecker;
spellchecker.ShowAllCapitalLettersWord = true;
 
Do not hesitate to contact us if you have other questions.
