    We have a requirement to spellcheck on form submission. Since the form is quite big, we had to use RadTabStrip to show the form in the multi tabs using RadMultiPage. I got the solution from here that triggers the spellcheck on form submission. However, this does not work if the RadEditor is in an inactive tab. Is there a way to achieve the spellcheck on hidden RadEditor on submission?

    Thank you,

    Hi James,

    Currently I could only make assumptions on the implementation and the configuration of the mentioned controls.

    Nevertheless you could follow these suggestions:
    • If the case is that the RadEditor control is configured directly inside a RadPageView then the editor is active even if it is hidden and there should not be a problem for the spell checker to be executed.
    • If the editor is implemented inside a user control and it is called from the page view, then you should first find the editor's unique ID and then get the control's instance to trigger (the fire method) commands.

    I am attaching two example projects, implemented as described in the above two cases, so that you could investigate them and follow them if they match your scenario. If they do not, please get back to me with more information about the implementation. It would be helpful if you could provide me with sample project isolating the problem, so that I am able to find a proper solution for you.
