Using a spell checker

P: n/a
Dear all,

I have an app that captures text entry from
the user and stores it in an SQL DB. I want
to make sure that the text is spelt correctly
using a spell checked; possibly the one
included in MS Office. Does anyone have
any suggestions as to how I can use the
spell checker in my own applications.

Thanks,

Jason.

You will need MS Word installed on the machine its running on and use
Interop services.

Hi,

Office spell check control. Requires office to be installed.

There is a spell check control from Component one in the vb.net resource
kit.

Spell checking (untested):

\\\
Dim MyWordApp As New Word.Application()
MsgBox( _
"Spelling errors: " & _
MyWordApp.CheckSpelling("Hello world!").ToString() _
)
