Getting Started with ASPNetSpell
The AspNetSpell component provides international spell checking for your ASP.Net web forms. It can be installed and integrated into most applications in a few minutes.
AspNetSpell behaves very similarly to MS Word's own spellchecker, making this software familiar to users. In addition ASPNetSpell users have access to a library of free international dictionaries.
AspNetSpell is compatible with ASP.Net 1, 2, 3, 3.5 and 4. The code it delivers is W3C HTML and XHTML compliant, and has a good degree of accessibility.
This guide covers basic usage in an ASP.Net Web Application:
- For MVC Installation and usage - please read the ASPNetSpell MVC installation and hello-world tutorial
- For use with the new Razor framework - please read the ASPNetSpell Razor installation and hello-world tutorial
- Download and unzip AspNetSpell to a convenient location on your hard disk.
- Add the ASPNetSpell.dll to your Visual Studio toolbox ( help... ). You can do this easily by just double clicking on the Install.vscontent file
- Copy the directory called AspNetSpellInclude to the root folder of your website project. The easiest way to do that is to simmply drag it the folder into your Solution Explorer. (help)
Using AspNetSpell.SpellButton for the First Time
Drag the SpellButton control from the toolbox onto your ASPX web form in design mode. You will see that it renders as a spell check button (if not read this).
To select the field(s) that AspNetSpell will spell check, change the FieldsToSpellCheck property.
Using AspNetSpell.SpellTextBox for the First Time
Drag the SpellTextBox into the web form in place of any normal multi-line text box.
