Spell Check in WinForms

Is there a way to implement Spell Check Functionality into WinForm (for the
text(s) contained/ entered in text box).
What are the best ways to implement spell checking in a WinForms application?

Thx.

As far as I am aware you have to write a spell cheker yourself. That
is what I did anyway. There are sources on the web for vocabularies.

If you have MS Office on the client machine, you can use the Word
spell-checker. I've seen articles on how to do it but don't remember just
where right now. Try a google groups search on the microsoft dotnet NG's and
you'll probably turn up something.

There are also third-party spell checkers; I've used one or two in VS6
applications, and there are .Net versions by now. RapidSpell is one example.
A google search would find you something there too.

Visual Studio Magazine (VSM; http://www.fawcette.com/vsm/) has an article
about using MS Word's spell checker in apps:
http://www.ftponline.com/vsm/2004_02...efault_pf.aspx

The code is in Visual Basic, but looking at it, it should be pretty easy to
convert to C#. Method also requires pasting from textbox to Word doc & back
again after spell check. Hopefully this gives you some ideas.
