Selectively Enable Spell Check

Code Writer App Suggestions and Support Forum

Posted 12 years ago by Jacob Bearce

I'd love a way to enable spell check with a button. I often type short paragraphs in my HTML instead of in Word, so using Windows 8's built in spell checking would be great. Of course it could get annoying because it'll think a lot of code is wrong, which is why I suggest it being a toggleable button in the app bar.

Hi Jacob,

We'd love to add spell check abilities.  The main issue though is that Microsoft doesn't expose the spell check API to us as C# developers, and our control doesn't inherit TextBox, where it is built-in.  We've requested API access from the text team in the past and their response was that it's not likely to get added.  We'll see if there are any other workarounds.
