Incorporate the MsWord dictionary in my text editor RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,
    I have an application made in Delphi, which has a text editor similar to MsWord and I wonder if there is any way to incorporate the MsWord dictionary in my text editor, not only the words added by the user (that I already use), but the MsWord dictionary in its entirety.
    It's possible?

  • Not directly...

    Word would have to be installed on the machine and your code would need to run it in order to access the object model. Basically, the text you want to check would have to be passed to Word, then the result returned. But you wouldn't get the "squigglies" or the grammar check, etc.
