I was pointed to this article by a colleague while researching purchase of RadSpell for our project but before we make the decision we'd like to make sure this is feasible and with the right Package (Ajax? mvc?) for our needs.

We have a shared and distributed hosting infrastructure and our spell-check requirements require not just spell checking on the web controls in UI but also before we even load the page or pop up the grid with lists. We need to run spell check at the app tier (n-tier fashion) by running a check on some database tables. We have WCF services on the application tier that we hope can reference the appropriate radspell dll and process the spell checking before loading the grid to display.

> Is this feasible? i.e. having radspell dll and referencing API on the app tier...

TIA!

Hi,

RadSpell for ASP.NET AJAX is part of the RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX suite. Our MVC suite does not offer a spellchecker.

As to your questions:
> Is this feasible? i.e. having radspell dll and referencing API on the app tier...
Yes, your idea looks feasible. You can use the SpellChecker class and API as shown in the forum thread: Server-side spell check and reference the Telerik.Web.UI.dll. Since we do not have such an example, because the spellchecker is designed to be used mainly in the browser as an UI control, it is up to the developer working with the control to implement and test the whole scenario.

> and if yes then how - which package is appropriate for our web and app tier needs and in a multi-tenant hosted environment we want to minimize the impact of putting libraries on server. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.  - You should download the RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX installation.

> We also need the ajax controls on web project - can we get by with the same package or do we have to purchase different products?
- Since RadSpell is part of our AJAX suite, you should only buy a license for RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX.
