Check Spelling

To implement a spell checking functionality in an application with the XtraRichEdit control, use the Spell Checker component.

Drag the SpellChecker component icon from the Visual Studio toolbox onto the form that contains XtraRichEdit control. Now the RichEditControl can check spelling. The RichEditControl.SpellChecker property is set automatically once the component is placed onto the form. You can specify dictionaries as described in XtraSpellChecker documentation (see the Dictionaries article for more information) and turn the Check-As-You-Type mode On, if required, via the SpellChecker.SpellCheckMode property.

When RichEditorControl is not located on the same form as the XtraSpellChecker - this situation may occur if XtraRichEdit is used as a repository editor in XtraGrid - spelling suggestions could be missing from the context menu. You should force menu creation by calling the SpellChecker.SetShowSpellCheckMenu method within the ColumnView.ShownEditor event.
