Ajaxian Spell Checker 2.2 Update

Category: Examples, Library

Garrison Locke has updated his Ajaxian spell checker with a 2.2 release.

A few of the major updates to the spell checker are:

  • Added a Beta wrapper for aspell so you don’t have to have pspell installed.
  • Added a preview mode (with image support) so you can see it even if you don’t have misspellings.
  • Won’t interfere with other code that uses onClick.
  • Added fix for the magic quotes problem (more server compatibility).
  • Results and suggestion divs are now dynamically generated so you can have multiple spell checkers on the same page.
  • You no longer have to include spell_checker.php on every page if you dont’ want to.
  • Code will strip out code between html tags so that people can’t abuse the html feature.
  • Text box no longer flashes the updates after you hit resume text.
  • Various other bug fixes. See the change log for the whole list.

Nice work Garrison!

Is there a spell check version which will work with just plain servlet engine. This tool requires php.

Just was wondering if it is possible to integrate spellchecker with kevinroth’s rich text editor?
