Remarks

Operating mode of spelling checker in a Word Processing control

  • A docx document contains information about the document language. This information is used to identify the dictionary language that will be used.
  • If the dictionary corresponding to the document language is placed beside the executable, it is automatically loaded and used to correct the document. If the dictionary corresponding to the document language is not found, the spell check is not available.
  • When creating a docx document via the Word Processing control, the document language corresponds to the current application language (defined by Nation for example).
  • CheckSpell is used to enable (or not) the spelling checker on a Word Processing control.
