RapidSpell provides 3 spelling components to add spell check functionality to your applications; RapidSpellDialog (dialog
based checker control), RapidSpellAsYouType (as you type check control) and RapidSpellChecker (core spell checker class).
RapidSpellDialog provides all the usual GUI features, add, undo, options, change, change all, ignore, ignore all, smart suggestions
and double word detection. It interactively checks ANY TextBoxBase derived component such as TextBox and RichTextBox as well
as 3rd Party Controls such as "TX Text Control". Checks selections, whole documents with wrap at end, highlights errors, accepts
manual corrections, allows user to edit main document during spell check and also supports an editable user dictionary.
RapidSpell includes Dict Manager free, which allows complete customization of the dictionaries.
The API was designed to provide for easy customization. The dialog GUIs can be redesigned by simply modifying the UI source
code in the VS designer, source is included in the demo projects. The spell checker engine is 'decoupled' from the GUI making
it possible to use custom word parsers with the GUI.
The RapidSpellDialog and RapidSpellAsYouType controls can be set to check multiple text boxes on a form, this means that only
one instance is used which speeds up design and improves efficiency.
Dict Manager, allows RapidSpell Dict files to be customized and created using other word lists.
RapidSpell Desktop was designed to .NET 1.1, .NET 2.0 and .NET 4.0 specification, and fully supports all versions of Visual
The non GUI component provides core functionality and ease of use - you pass the text you want checked and then iterate through
each misspelled word finding suggestions and correcting as you go. You have access to the corrected text at any time.
Two powerful suggestions engines are used to find good suggestions for words, including an exclusive 'sounds-like' algorithm.
RapidSpellDialog control can be used in Internet/Intranet security context settings.
