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, change,
change all, ignore, ignore all, smart suggestions and double word
detection. It interactively checks ANY TextBox derived component
such as PowerWEB TextBox for ASP.NET, as well as 3rd Party
Controls such as TX Text Control. RapidSpellDialog also checks
selections or whole documents with wrap at end, highlights errors,
accepts manual corrections, allows user to edit main document
during spell check and also supports a user dictionary.
RapidSpellAsYouType functions in a way familiar to your users;
spelling errors are highlighted as the user types, cuts/pastes,
block deletes and loads files. This is the first .NET control to
persistently highlight errors as the user continues to work (type,
scroll etc). Right-clicking on a highlight presents a popup
context menu with suggestions and options to 'Ignore All' or 'Add'
to user dictionary. RapidSpellAsYouType works with TextBox and
RichTextBox subclassed controls included in the product. Only one
instance of RapidSpellAsYouType is needed for all text boxes on a
RapidSpellChecker provides core spell checker functionality, which
means it is suitable for server applications as well as any
console application. It supports a user dictionary and run-time
switchable main dictionaries. It has been clocked at 70,000
words/sec on a standard 1GHz PC.
RapidSpell includes Dict Manager, which allows complete
customization of the dictionaries.
The API was designed to provide for easy customization. The GUI
can be redesigned by simply extending its class and overriding the
design method (an example of this is included). 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.
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.
Corrected text is accessible at any time.
Dict Manager, allows RapidSpell Dict files to be customized and
created using other word lists.
RapidSpell Desktop provides a simple interface specification which
allows 3rd Party Controls to be used with the Dialog checker. This
simple mechanism means it is possible to use just about any
Control with RapidSpell Desktop; the full product includes an
'adapter' control for the popular "TX Text Control" and
Two powerful suggestion engines are used to find alternatives for
words, including an exclusive 'sounds-like' algorithm. RapidSpell
Desktop was designed to .NET 1.0 and .NET 1.1 specifications.
