How can I have it check more than one Textbox at a time?  The current approach seems rather inefficient for situations where I have more than one Textbox to check.  This also seems like a very common Use Case.

Decided that this route was not ideal and instead opted for using the RADRichTextBox control with spell checking.

Hello Keith,

I can see that your first question is not pending any more, but still: you can find more information on spell checking custom controls in our online documentation.

Kind regards,

Hi

I have a page that has multiple textbox controls required spellcheck by a click of a button. They can't be combined into a richtextbox. I look at your link to the documentation but I am not sure how that applies to this scenario.

What I like to do is to have one spellcheck dialog for all the textbox controls for the page. So, they can be checked at the same time. Another option is to have spellchecker spell check each textbox one at a time. Subsequence textbox spellchecker will display after the previous one is closed. For the second option, I can't find in the documentation where I can hook up to the close event of the spellchecker dialog so I can invoke another one for the next textbox.

In my test project, I try the following and 3 spellchecker dialogs pop up at the same time. However, only the dialog for txt3 replaces the wrong word correctly. txt1 and txt2 are not replaced with suggestion.

Maybe there are other ways to accomplish this and any help will be helpful. Thanks.
Jocelyn


private void btnSpellCheck_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
{
   RadSpellChecker.Check(txt1, SpellCheckingMode.AllAtOnce);
   RadSpellChecker.Check(txt2, SpellCheckingMode.AllAtOnce);
   RadSpellChecker.Check(txt3, SpellCheckingMode.AllAtOnce);
}

Hi Jocelyn,

Thank you for bringing up the issue again. On second glance, this scenario is indeed not so easy to implement and it seems that it is quite a common one at that, too. We will take it into consideration with regard to extending the API in the near future.

Any additional information on this topic?  I've got the same scenario with multiple text boxes in a WinForms project.

Hi Scott,

RadSpellChecker for WinForms is a different product than RadSpellChecker for Silverlight/WPF.
Please, post your questions about the spell checker for WinForms in the WinForms forum.

All the best,

Hi Pascal,

We've made a sample project containing 3 TextBox controls and a button. When you click the button the are all spellchecked. This can be done for RadRichTextBox controls too. Please revise the attached example.
NOTE: If you want to use several RadRichTextBox controls and spellcheck them, you can just set IsSpellCheckingEnabled="true" for each RadRichTextBox. This is much easier than using RadSpellChecker.

Hi guys,
it would be more convinient if RadSpellChecker could accept list of controls which should be checked, similar how ASP spellchecker works - <telerik:RadSpell ID="spell1" runat="server" ControlsToCheck="textarea1,textarea2,textarea3"
IsClientID="true" ButtonText="Check all"></telerik:RadSpell>
</form>


See: http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/spell/examples/multiplechecks/defaultcs.aspx

The attached Telerik solution is not very practical. Imagine having numerous text boxes (30 to 40) on a screen... the user will get numerous messages "The spell check is complete". That just creates a horrible user interface.

Any plans to make this control work seamlessly with multiple controls? It seems Vit100 suggestion might be a better alternative than the one provided. Or is there another solution / stategy? Our shop uses the Telerik controls heavily and I would love to be able to use the spell checker.
Thoughts?

Hello,

At this point spellchecking seamlessly several controls is not included in our plans. However, RadSpellChecker allows you to specify various window settings, including whether the alert showing the check is completed to be shown. Maybe you can disable the alert and enable it prior the last control in your application is spellchecked.
RadSpellChecker.WindowSettings.ShowAlertWhenSpellCheckingCompleted = false;

I hope this helps!

Petya

Thanks Petya, this indeed is very helpful. I set this flag and the popup confirmation no longer shows... excellent.

However, the Spell Checking window say "The spelling check is complete" in red after it finishes spell checking each textbox instead of simply moving on to the next text box. I really don't care about this message - is there anyway to not show this message so the spell checking can be seamless? We're soooo close!

Hi,

Unfortunately such customization option is not currently available. We think that the scenario would be a nice enhancement of RadSpellChecker and will increase the priority of the task in our backlog. Still, I cannot say if we will be able to include this in the plan for the next release.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Regards,
Petya
