Automating writer's SpellChecker from Delphi

Postby digitiger » Mon Apr 13, 2015 6:29 am


We had been using MS Word's spell checker in the background of our Delphi application (opensource) to do the Spell check and other such operations.

With M$ turning more restrictive with each passing day, we are trying to move our project away from dependencies on any COTS and moving as many dependencies to freewares as possible. Currently we are planning to replace the spellcheck functionality to OpenOffice.

In this regards, I would like to request you gurus to please advise if anyone has tried automating SpellCheck from external application or if anyone can help with some small macro code or Basic code or any reference please.....

Thanks in advance

You should search for Hunspell; you may find useful help there, as this is the dictionary format that OpenOffice uses.
