How to exclude TaxonomyFieldControl from spell checker RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a page layout with a couple of TaxonomyFieldControls on it. When I run the spell checker in the ribbon the taxonomy fields are getting flagged with spelling errors. I don't want the taxonomy fields to be included in the spell check.

    I solved this problem for the UserField control (People Picker) and the SPFieldTargetToControlcontrol (Audience Targeting) by using javascript to add the class "ms-spellcheck-false" and setting the attribute "excludeFromSpellCheck" to true for the html elements generated by those controls. However, the same fix does not work for the TaxonomyFieldControl.

    Has anybody run into this and found a solution?

  • Hi,

    We can add a custom dictionary and include the terms that fail the check into it! To do so follow these steps:

    1. Create a document library in the root site of your site collection called 'Spelling'.

    2. Create a text document with the file name 'Custom Dictionary.txt', the contents of which should be your custom terms – one to each line. In my case here this was a single line with the term 'Pharma'.

    3. Upload 'Custom Dictionary.txt' to your 'Spelling' document library.
