ISpell, OpenOffice, Hunspell

The DevExpress VCL Spell Checker includes built-in support for custom dictionaries in plain text or the following read-to-use dictionary formats: Ispell, OpenOffice and Hunspell.

Check-as-You-Type Mode

Intuitive error indication.

Check-as-You-Type Mode

When the DevExpress Spell Checker encounters a spelling error, words that aren't in the dictionary can be underlined using wavy red lines. The Spell Checker automatically checks spelling as you type, word by word in a separate thread without affecting UI responsiveness.

Spelling Dialog

Built-in spelling error indication forms.

Spelling Dialog

DevExpress Spell Checker ships with a choice of two spelling error indication dialogs - both replicate dialogs found in Microsoft Office (Outlook & Word). In addition, the control includes Dictionary dialogs so that end-users can add unrecognized words to their dictionary. As you would expect from a spell checker, end-users can build a custom word list as needs dictate.

Spelling Options Dialog

Built-in spell checking options dialog.

Spelling Options Dialog

From general options such as "ignore uppercase" to editing custom dictionary entries and language selection, the DevExpress VCL Spell Checker's Options Dialog allows end-users to modify spell checking behavior as necessary.


Turn on automatic spelling checking.


Use the AutoCorrect spelling mode to correct typos, capitalization errors, and misspelled words, as well as automatically insert symbols and other pieces of text. By default, AutoCorrect uses a standard list of typical misspellings and symbols, but you can modify the entries in the AutoCorrect Options Dialog.
