Visual Elements

The DevExpress WinForms Spell Checker ships with all UI elements you'll need to fully replicate the spell checking user experience available in Microsoft Word or Microsoft Outlook.

Customizable Spell Checking Dialogs

Built-in spelling error indication forms.

Customizable Spell Checking Dialogs

Choose one 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, 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 Options Dialog allows end-users to modify spell checking behavior as necessary.

Popup (Context) Menu

Integration with Popup Menus.

Popup (Context) Menu

You can automatically embed Custom Items (suggestions, etc) to the context menu to simplify error correction (without the need to invoke a dialog).

Check-as-You-Type Mode

Intuitive error indication.

Check-as-You-Type Mode

Errors can be underlined using wavy red lines. The control automatically checks spelling as you type, word by word in a separate thread without affecting UI responsiveness.
"The response from DevExpress is always prompt, detailed and typically includes a code sample. Have used their suite for 4 years and never regretted my choice for one second." Jim Thomas

ISpell, OpenOffice, Hunspell

Testing Support

The DevExpress Universal Subscription includes built-in support for Microsoft's CodedUI. Unlike many vendors claiming support for Coded UI through the simple use of MSAA, DevExpress controls go the extra mile to make certain that individual controls fully comply with Microsoft's testing framework. We don't simply support Coded UI; we support it to the maximum extent possible. Note: CodedUI support requires purchase of the DevExpress Universal Subscription. Learn more about Coded UI

MVVM Framework

The DevExpress MVVM Framework ships with features that are absent in WinForms, but essential to MVVM development. These missing features include bindings, commands, UI triggers, behaviors etc. Our Framework includes all of these along with a straightforward API to make WinForms app development more efficient.
