Hi Team!

 Is their a way on how to used the SpellCheckUppercaseWords and SpellCheckWordsWithNumbers property under the namespace Telerik.WinForms.Documents.Proofing while I am using Telerik.WinControls.RichTextBox.Proofing for loading the spell check custom library. As i tried WinControls.RichTextBox.Proofing does not contains a member of DocumentSpellChecker.Settings so therefore I cannot use this way of using the property DocumentSpellChecker.Settings.SpellCheckUppercaseWords = True for allowing uppercase spell check. See below part of my code.

 //Setting up spell check.

 Friend Shared SpellCheckCulture As CultureInfo = CultureInfo.GetCultureInfo("en-GB")

 

Dim textBoxControlSpellChecker As IControlSpellChecker = Me.RadSpellCheck.GetControlSpellChecker(GetType(TextBox))
Dim documentSpellChecker As DocumentSpellChecker = TryCast(textBoxControlSpellChecker.SpellChecker, DocumentSpellChecker)

documentSpellChecker.Settings.SpellCheckUppercaseWords = True   //This part will got an error if I import Telerik.WinControls.RichTextBox.Proofing

documentSpellChecker.AddDictionary(New SpellCheckDictionary(), SpellCheckCulture)

documentSpellChecker.SpellCheckingCulture = SpellCheckCulture

 

//Loading of Custom Library using Telerik.WinControls.RichTextBox.Proofing

Public Class SpellCheckDictionary
        Inherits WordDictionary
        Protected Overrides Sub EnsureDictionaryLoadedOverride()

            Try

                Using ms As MemoryStream = New MemoryStream(File.ReadAllBytes("en-GB.tdf"))
                    Me.Load(ms)
                End Using

            Catch ex As Exception
                Glenfield.Common.HandleError(ex)
            End Try

        End Sub
    End Class

Hi Luis,

Thank you for writing.

Please note that the RadRichTextBox control is obsolete since our Q3 2014 release. The required settings is only available for the RadRichTextEditor and it is located in the Telerik.WinForms.Documents.Proofing namespace. Please check the following documentation article explaining how the SpellCheck functionality works: RadRichTextEditor | SpellCheck 

I created a simple example demonstrating how your task can be achieved using RadRichTextEditor
Private Sub SetDictionaryPref(radRichTextEditor As RadRichTextEditor)
    Dim spellCheckCulture As CultureInfo = CultureInfo.GetCultureInfo("en-GB")
    Dim dictionary = Me.GetDictionary()
    If dictionary IsNot Nothing Then
        CType(radRichTextEditor.SpellChecker, DocumentSpellChecker).AddDictionary(dictionary, spellCheckCulture)
        Dim documentSpellChecker As DocumentSpellChecker = TryCast(radRichTextEditor.SpellChecker, DocumentSpellChecker)
        documentSpellChecker.Settings.SpellCheckUppercaseWords = True
    End If
End Sub
 
Private Function GetDictionary() As RadDictionary
    Dim dictionary As New RadDictionary
    Try
        Using ms As MemoryStream = New MemoryStream(File.ReadAllBytes("en-GB.tdf"))
            dictionary.Load(ms)
        End Using
 
        Return dictionary
    Catch ex As Exception
        Return Nothing
    End Try
End Function

I hope this helps. Should you have further questions please do not hesitate to write back.

 Hi Hristo,

Thank you for the prompt response.

In relation with the above concern, before I used MS multi line TextBox, but to work with the above suggestions i change to RadRichTextbox but i found differences in font size, even though the font settings are all the same as MS TextBox. How do I work this out in RadRichTextBox, is there any other settings or property do i have to set.

Hello Luis,

Thank you for writing back. 

I did not observe issues with the font size of the content in RadRichTextBox. As I mentioned earlier the control is obsolete and is not being further developed.

If possible, I suggest you to switch to the more advanced RadRichTextEditor. In case you insist on staying with RadRichTextBox here is an article explaining the spellchecking feature: http://www.telerik.com/help/winforms/richtextbox-features-spellcheck.html

I hope this helps. Should you have further questions please do not hesitate to write back.

Hi Hristo!, I'm trying to use SpellChecker with RadTextBox in mode "word by word", it works ok except when RadTextBox control has the property CharacterCasing set to "Upper". My DocumentSpellChecker object hasn't a property named "Settings" to set the property "SpellCheckUppercaseWords", Code example: spcValor is RadSpellChecker control, txt_valor is RadTextBox control:

Thank you very much.

spcValor.AutoSpellCheckControl = txt_valor
setearDiccionario(spcValor)
...
 Public Shared Sub setearDiccionario(ByRef ao_spcControl As Telerik.WinControls.UI.RadSpellChecker)
   Dim lo_textBoxControlSpellChecker As Telerik.WinControls.UI.IControlSpellChecker = ao_spcControl.GetControlSpellChecker(GetType(Telerik.WinControls.UI.RadTextBox))
   Dim lo_documentSpellChecker As Telerik.WinControls.SpellChecker.Proofing.DocumentSpellChecker = TryCast(lo_textBoxControlSpellChecker.SpellChecker,Telerik.WinControls.SpellChecker.Proofing.DocumentSpelChecker)
   lo_documentSpellChecker.AddDictionary(New MySpanishDictionary(), CulturaEspanol)
End Sub

Hello, Guillermo,     

RadRichTextEditor has its own spellchecking functionality which is not related to the functionality provided by RadSpellChecker. That is why the SpellCheckUppercaseWords is missing for RadSpellChecker. However, if you need to enable the upper casing for your specific case, please refer to the following code snippet how to do it: 

Friend Shared CulturaEspanol As CultureInfo = CultureInfo.GetCultureInfo("es-ES")
Sub New()
 
    InitializeComponent()
    Me.RadSpellChecker1.SpellCheckMode = Telerik.WinControls.UI.SpellCheckMode.WordByWord
    Me.RadSpellChecker1.AutoSpellCheckControl = Me.RadTextBox1
 
    Threading.Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture   = CulturaEspanol
     
    Me.RadTextBox1.CharacterCasing = CharacterCasing.Upper
    Dim textBoxControlSpellChecker As TextBoxSpellChecker = Me.RadSpellChecker1.GetControlSpellChecker(GetType(RadTextBox))
    Dim documentSpellChecker As DocumentSpellChecker = TryCast(textBoxControlSpellChecker.SpellChecker, DocumentSpellChecker)
    textBoxControlSpellChecker.ShowAllCapitalLettersWord=True
    documentSpellChecker.SpellCheckingCulture= CulturaEspanol 
    documentSpellChecker.AddDictionary(New MySpanishDictionary(), CulturaEspanol)
 
End Sub
 
Public Class MySpanishDictionary
Inherits WordDictionary
    Protected Overrides Sub EnsureDictionaryLoadedOverride()
        Using ms As MemoryStream = New MemoryStream(My.Resources.es_ES)
            Me.Load(ms)
        End Using
    End Sub
End Class

I hope this information helps. If you need any further assistance please don't hesitate to contact me.
