SpellingAndGrammar window does not stay RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello

    I am calling SpellingAndGrammar in my Add-In (VSTO - Outlook AddIn) as below.

    ---------

    Dim

    offCBs As Office.CommandBars = Me.Application.ActiveInspector().CommandBars

    offCBs.GetType().InvokeMember(

    "ExecuteMso", System.Reflection.BindingFlags.InvokeMethod, Nothing, offCBs, New Object() {"SpellingAndGrammar"})

    ----------

    Problem is that it won't stay until i complete the spell check. Spell Check window shows up, automatically closes and next line of code is executed.

    Any idea how i can make the spell check stay until i complete it?

    Thanks

  • Hello,

    Instead of invoking the command, add a reference to Word's interop and invoke the method:

    Imports Word = Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word
    '...
    CType(Me.Appication.ActiveInspector.WordEditor, Word.Document).CheckSpeclling(...)
    

    The code line above uses the fact that Word is the email editor in Outlook 2007-2010.

    Does it help?

  • maybe there are no error to correct so it closes? When are you invoking that code?

  • No there are errors to correct. I can see Spell Checket  showing words to be corrected but it wont stay.

    I have a command bar button (named - "Imaging") added in outlook. When composing a new email, you click on this Command Bar button - Imaging. What it does is to send the email and invoke a windows form which will help the user to take the sent email and put it in the image database. Before sending the email i am calling ExecuteMso on SpellingAndGrammar as the user wants to have spell check invoked. (Option to spell check before sending the email is enabled in Outlook.)

    Thanks

    Sorry? Are you using Outlook 2000-2003? If you use Outlook 2007-2010, then in what way the code doesn't work? Exceptions? Inspector.WordEditor returns Nothing (null in C#)?

  • Hi V2011,

     

    Thanks for posting in the MSDN Forum.

     

    Would you please clarify the questions that Andrei asked? I think that is important for further research.

     

    Have a good day,

  • Hello Andrei and Tom

    I apologize for not posting the reply right away. Everything is working fine now. I am able to invoke the SpellChecker as suggested by Andrei. I got this working last week.

    Thanks a lot for the Help Andrei.
