The ExpressSpellChecker provides you with a straightforward way to add Microsoft® Office® style spell checking capabilities into your next Windows® application and offers you built-in spelling correction forms that replicate corresponding forms found in Microsoft Word® and Outlook®. Because these forms were built using our ExpressEditors Library, they will seamlessly integrate into any application powered by DevExpress components.

Control Integration and API:
Control Integration and API

A wide range of both DevExpress and standard text-editing controls are fully supported.

The ExpressSpellChecker's API includes methods to check an arbitrary string, a text editor's content or all text editor controls within a specified container. You can handle specially designed events to fully manage the spell checking process - including suppression of built-in forms, manual error processing, etc.

Built-in Dialogs and Check as You Type Mode:
Built-in Dialogs and Check as You Type Mode

Spell Checking Dialogs: Allow end-users to add unrecognized words to a dictionary. As one would expect from this type of control, end-users can build a custom word list if required. Spelling options allow you to ignore emails, URLs, mixed case/upper-case words, repeated words and words with numbers within them.

Check as You Type: Whether you use DevExpress or standard text input controls, words that aren't in the dictionary can be underlined with straight or wavy red lines. When activated, the ExpressSpellChecker automatically checks spelling as you type, word by word in a separate thread without affecting UI responsiveness.

Multiple Dictionaries and Mixed Language:
Multiple Dictionaries and Mixed Language

Built-in support for custom dictionaries in plain text or the following ready-to-use dictionary formats: ISpell or Hunspell (OpenOffice).

The DevExpress VCL SpellChecker allows you to easily change the language and corresponding dictionary used during spell checking.
