    Hello,
    I am working in a Silverlight project where a requirement is to have a centralized place for a customized spell checker dictionary.
    I have successfully used the spell checking capability of your silverlight richtextbox in conjunction with a custom dictionary that my application downloads from a web server.

    Now the only problem I have left is to give to the system administrator of our system the possibility to edit the basic US English dictionary to add specific words.

    Looking at your forums I have found a lot of examples and documentation on how to add words to a custom dictionary using your class 'DictionaryImporter'.
    The problem is that the DictionaryImporter is included inside your Telerik.Web.UI.dll that is sold with your RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX.

    Unfortunately we can't buy the RadControls just for the DictionaryImporter class.

    Do you know if there is an alternative way to add a word in your dictionary file with the your Silverlight controls license?

    If not, could you describe me the meaning of the column separated fields in your TDF files?

    Thanks in advance,
    Frank

    Hello Frank,

    You are right that there should be an API for users to be able to modify the tdf files of the dictionaries. In appreciation of your suggestions, I have awarded you some Telerik points.
    As for a solution to the problem, you can submit a support ticket where we can give you a few source files along with an explanation how to use them in order to be able to add words to the tdf dictionaries. Removing them is trivial, let us know if you don't know how.

    Greetings,
    Ivailo

    Hello Ivailo,
    Thank you for your answer.
    you are right, it is not a problem for me to remove words from a dictionary because I have just to remove the corresponding line in the TDF file.

    I have opened a support ticket as you said, to have the code that will allow me to add correctly my words in the dictionary.

    Thanks again,
    Frank
