    Hi --

    I'm trying to add some SpellChecker capabilities to a RadGridView.  I'm currently auto-generating the columns in the GridView because it's not a fixed object type that will be displayed in the list. 

    I am looking for a way to either:
    • Have the spell checker work when columns are auto-generated (just apply it to all columns)
    • Programmatically add columns to the gridview (MVVM pattern) by using reflection on an object.  With any luck, I would be able to use a custom DataAnnotation to indicate whether to use spell check on the generated column.  Also could maybe use a different annotation for the column heading?? 

    Let me know your thoughts -- it would be really cool to get this to work.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi, Erik

    You have a very peculiar scenario, indeed. Spell checking auto-generated columns is not possible because there isn't a way or place you could plug the Spellchecker.
    About your second approach, if you can attach a demo describing how you intend to add those columns through reflection, we can try to add the spellchecking capabilities.

    I should be able to work up a sample solution within a few days' time.  I'll update this thread with the post when I have it.  Thanks in advance.
