RapidSpell Desktop .NET + Thesaurus Desktop .NET allows you to add spell checking value and advanced thesaurus functionality to any textual application (email, word processor etc) with a couple of lines of code. RapidSpell Desktop can also be used in non GUI contexts using it's spell checking API.

RapidSpell Desktop .NET provides 3 spelling components to add spell check functionality to your applications; RapidSpellDialog (dialog based checker control), RapidSpellAsYouType (as you type check control) and RapidSpellChecker (core spell checker class):

  • RapidSpellDialog provides all the usual GUI features, add, change, change all, ignore, ignore all, and smart suggestions. It interactively checks ANY TextBoxBase derived component such as TextBox and RichTextBox aswell as 3rd Party Controls such as "TX Text Control". Checks selections, whole documents with wrap at end, highlights errors, accepts manual corrections, allows user to edit main document during spell check and also supports a user dictionary

  • RapidSpellAsYouType functions like your users will expect. Spelling errors are highlighted as the user types, cuts/pastes, block deletes and loads files. This is the first .NET control to persistently highlight errors as the user continues to work (type, scroll etc). Right-clicking on a highlight presents a popup context menu with suggestions and options to 'Ignore All' or 'Add' to user dictionary. Works with TextBox and RichTextBox subclassed controls included in the product. Only one instance of RapidSpellAsYouType is needed for all text boxes on a form

  • RapidSpellChecker provides core spell checker functionality, which means it is suitable for server applications as well as any console application. It supports a user dictionary and run-time switchable main dictionaries. It has been clocked at 70,000 words/sec on a standard 1GHz PC
