SpellCheck Class

Provides real-time spell checking functionality to text editing controls, including TextBox and RichTextBox.

Namespace: System.Windows.Controls
Assembly: PresentationFramework (in presentationframework.dll)
XML Namespace:  http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation

public sealed class SpellCheck
public final class SpellCheck
public final class SpellCheck
You cannot use this managed class in XAML.

When this spell checker is enabled, misspelled words are underlined by a red squiggly line.

The following example shows how to enable real-time spellchecking in a TextBox using the IsEnabled property of the SpellCheck class.

<Page xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"
  xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml">

  <StackPanel>
    <TextBox SpellCheck.IsEnabled="True" Name="myTextBox"></TextBox>
  </StackPanel>

</Page>

using System;
using System.Windows;
using System.Windows.Controls;

namespace SDKSample
{
    public partial class SpellCheckExample : Page
    {
        public SpellCheckExample()
        {
            StackPanel myStackPanel = new StackPanel();

            //Create TextBox
            TextBox myTextBox = new TextBox();
            myTextBox.Width = 200;

            // Enable spellchecking on the TextBox.
            myTextBox.SpellCheck.IsEnabled = true;

            // Alternatively, the SetIsEnabled method could be used
            // to enable or disable spell checking like this:
            // SpellCheck.SetIsEnabled(myTextBox, true);

            myStackPanel.Children.Add(myTextBox);
            this.Content = myStackPanel;
        }
    }
}
