R:Spell Checker is an end-user spell check Plugin for confirming the spelling for form controls. R:Spell Checker works with TEXT, NOTE, VARCHAR and BLOB(RTF) data types. Editing the form data is supported for the following Database and Variable Controls:

  • DB Edit
  • DB Memo
  • DB Rich Text
  • Variable Edit
  • Variable Memo
  • Variable Rich Text

R:Spell Checker supports two different methods to store the spell checking configuration settings. The default option for individual users is the registry. For network installations, compiled applications, or runtime users, the spell checking configuration settings can be stored in a configuration file. The configuration file support allows individuals to use and store their own spell check settings.

R:Spell Checker includes several word dictionaries, and allows you to create custom dictionaries to customize the spell checker behavior. R:Spell Checker also contains "Custom Dictionary" options that support new words to be added to a dictionary, an Auto-Correct feature so you can specify a list of words to be paired up and automatically corrected, and an exclusion list of words that will always be considered misspelled.

The following language dictionaries are included with the product:
