XAML Spell Checking September 27, 2006

Posted by Hank Wallace in Programming.

Xamlog writes about Spell Checking with Text-based Controls in XAML. This is an interesting example, but I am not convinced that spell checking belongs in the presentation layer. What do you think?

Here is an examples for a text box and rich text box:

<TextBox SpellCheck.IsEnabled="True">
    A "mispelled" word is underlined with a wavy red line.

My concerns would be that with a presentation layer spellcheck, it would be challenging to create a common glossary. But if the functionality already lives in the .Net Framework, at least there’s no additional deployment required.

It’s not really a presentation layer spellcheck. The attribute that determines if spellcheck is enabled might exist in the presentation layer, but the support for it is in the .NET Framework. I will admit that I haven’t looked deep enough into this feature to recommend it. My hope is that it isn’t simply “demo-ware” and that the feature is extensible.
