TextBox::GetSpellingError Method

Returns a SpellingError object associated with any spelling error at the specified character index.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Controls
Assembly:  PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)

public:
SpellingError^ GetSpellingError(
	int charIndex
)

Parameters

charIndex
Type: System::Int32
The zero-based character index of a position in content to examine for a spelling error.

Return Value

Type: System.Windows.Controls::SpellingError
A SpellingError object containing the details of the spelling error found at the character indicated by charIndex, or nullptr if no spelling error exists at the specified character.

By default, when you enable spell checking in an editing control like TextBox or RichTextBox, you get spell-checking choices in the context menu. For example, when users right-click a misspelled word, they get a set of spelling suggestions or the option to Ignore All. However, when you override the default context menu with your own custom context menu, this functionality is lost, and you need to write code to reenable the spell-checking feature in the context menu. The following example shows how to enable this on a TextBox.

The following example shows the Extensible Application Markup Language (XAML) that creates a TextBox with some events that are used to implement the context menu.


<Page x:Class="SDKSample.SpellerCustomContextMenu"
    xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"
    xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"
    Loaded="OnWindowLoaded">

  <TextBox
    Name="myTextBox" 
    TextWrapping="Wrap"
    SpellCheck.IsEnabled="True"
    ContextMenuOpening="tb_ContextMenuOpening">
    In a custum menu you need to write code to add speler choices
    because everything in a custom context menu has to be added explicitly.
  </TextBox>

</Page>


The following example shows the code that implements the context menu.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.

The code used for doing this with a RichTextBox is similar. The main difference is in the parameter passed to the GetSpellingError method. For a TextBox, pass the integer index of the caret position:

spellingError = myTextBox.GetSpellingError(caretIndex);

For a RichTextBox, pass the TextPointer that specifies the caret position:

spellingError = myRichTextBox.GetSpellingError(myRichTextBox.CaretPosition);
