Identifier field


Metadata properties set to true


The spelling reform rules determined by this property refer to the French and German spelling reforms. This property has no effect when used with any other language.

This dependency property also has a specialized write-only attached property usage. The XAML syntax for setting the property is <textBoxBaseClass SpellCheck.SpellingReform="enumValue" .../>, where textBoxBaseClass is an object element for a class that derives from TextBoxBase, and enumValue is a string name for a value of the SpellingReform enumeration. To set the property as an attached property in code, see SetSpellingReform. There is no matching GetSpellingReform accessor; to get the value, get the current SpellCheck from TextBoxBase.SpellCheck, then get the value of SpellingReform from that SpellCheck.
