Hello,

We're using spellchecking on a RadRichTextBox using an English / British dictionary. Based on the examples I've seen I'm under the impression that it should be enough to add the dictionary to the spellchecker associated with with RadRichTextBox.

However whenever the user is typing in these controls it uses the EN-US dictionary rather than the EN-GB one. The only way to get the RichTextBox to use the EN-GB dictionary is to set the spellchecker explicitely, ie:

richTextBox.SpellChecker = ControlSpellCheckersManager.GetControlSpellChecker(typeof(RadRichTextBox)).SpellChecker;

Is this intended to work this way ?

Cheers,

Hello,

I'm afraid I am having a hard time understanding your setup and the issue you are facing.

The internalization feature provided by RadRichTextBox's spellchecking functionality depends on the current culture, i.e. in order to make sure the added by you English / British dictionary is used you can specify the current culture:
Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture = new CultureInfo("en-GB");

Alternatively you can specify the spellchecking culture of a specific control spell checker like this:
((DocumentSpellChecker)this.radRichTextBox.SpellChecker).SpellCheckingCulture = new CultureInfo("en-GB");

Please let me know if I misunderstood you or you need further assistance.

Hi, please use a spellchecker to check spelling, but when you add a dictionary (about 600 thousand words), the component is very slow, is there another possibility to add Russian dictionary?
