This application demonstrates a control template called HandySpellCheckConrtrol, a template that brings low-overhead, multi-language spell-checking to your applications.
It drops a single "Spell Check" button onto your window to trigger spell-checking in entry and text controls populated on the procedure window. Checking can be triggered for the entire window using the button provided or individual controls can be checked using a configurable hot key.
Further, individual words may be checked by selecting the word and using a configurable hot key. Initially we are providing, on request, lexicons for the following languages: English, Afrikaans, Croatian, French, German, Greek, Italian, Netherlands, Portugese, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, Ukranian.
Since these lexicons are derived from open-source word lists, we will ask developers seeking non-English dictionaries to help us develop a common-words list for their chosen language. A common-words list is a set of the top 25-50 most commonly used words. In English, for example, these are words like "the", "and", "to", and so forth.
As of CHT build 112A1.01 CHT spell checking has been taken out of BETA and placed into RELEASE status. Four dictionaries are presently available: English, French, Afrikaans, and Portugese. Aside from English, we chose to release these languages first because developers contacted us and specifically encouraged us to do so.
If you speak and work in any of the above listed, but not-yet-implemented langauges, feel free to contact us and encourage us to give priority to your language in an upcoming build.
Any questions, feel free to ask.
