Spelling Dialog

When the SpellChecker component finds a word that is not contained in the dictionaries associated with the current culture, the Spelling dialog can be used for making corrections. This dialog is invoked when a spell check is started on demand (for example, when the end-user clicks a button and calls the SpellChecker.Check method), or the Check Spelling item is selected from the context menu, displayed when the end-user right-clicks the incorrect word.

This dialog enables the end-user to do one of the following:

  • Select one of the suggested corrections to replace the misspelled word (once or all occurrences in the text);
  • Skip the word;
  • Ignore the word and all its future occurrences in the text;
  • Add the word to a custom dictionary of the Spell Checker.

The Options... button invokes the Spelling Options Dialog dialog. The Undo button allows cancelling changes, step by step.

You can use the SpellCheckerBase.SpellingFormType property to change the Spelling dialog type (SpellingFormType.Outlook or SpellingFormType.Word).
