The WPF Spell Check Control provides a straightforward way in which to add Microsoft® Office® style spell checking capabilities into your next WPF application and offers you built-in suggestion forms that replicate corresponding forms found in Microsoft Outlook®. Because these forms were built using our application-wide themes, they will seamlessly integrate into any application powered by DevExpress controls.
