#943 – Turning on Spell Checking within a TextBox
November 5, 2013 1 Comment
You can enable automatic spell checking in a TextBox control by setting the SpellCheck.IsEnabled property to true.
<TextBox Margin="5" Height="100" TextWrapping="Wrap" AcceptsReturn="True" VerticalScrollBarVisibility="Auto" SpellCheck.IsEnabled="True"/>
When spell-checking is enabled, words that are misspelled are underlined with a red squiggly line.
When the spell-checker flags a spelling error, you can right-click on the red line to see a menu of suggested corrections.
Selecting one of the suggestions will cause the misspelled text to be replaced with the correction.
