How to provide Dictionary within the app? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    am developing a windows store app using C# and XAML.

    My application is Notes type of application where user can enter title and description in the page and they can save it.

    For the Textbox am enabled isspellcheck enabled property to True, so that if i enter some wrong text in the under neath it will highlight the text with red lines.

    I have few words and i want to add it to a dictionary so that if i enter any of the word in the Textbox the red lines under neath should not come.

    How to add dictionary in the app with bunch of words and how to use them?

    any help please..

  • Hi Santhosh,

    Sounds like you have a list for spell check candidate, follow the Spell checking guideline I did not find any information that we can programmatically add words to dictionary.

    However based on the About the Spell Checking API, looks like we need to install the spell checking provider for system use, but there also a line: In Windows 8, spell checking is built-in to edit controls.

    I'm afraid there could be no way to change that.
