Spellcheck in your GUI

Recommended Posts

Hey Autoit forum members!

So it's been a while since I've posted anything, but I feel like I should share this one ;)

Spellchecking that WORKS! Finally a really easy and simple way to add spellchecking to a GUI. Looks nice, feels comfortable, and is completely editable(the appearance).

How does it works?

Googiespell and Google have provided an awesome way to integrate a multilingual spellcheck textbox into any standard html page. Using an embedded browser and custom made html document(done in expression web 4), it makes a really nice looking spellcheck to use in your gui. Try it out!

ZIP contains:

Spellchecksample.au3 <-- The autoit script, duh

SpellChecker.html <-- The custom html page(edit this to change colors / look and feel)

Googiespell(folder) <-- All of the Javascript, images, and other random crap Googiespell has provided us with.

Enjoy! If you have any questions or comments feel free to ask.

--Making changes to spellchecker--

Q. How do I add more languages?

A. Under spellchecker.html, you can add or remove any of these languages:

googie2.setLanguages({"da": "Dansk", "de": "Deutsch", "en": "English",

"es": "Español", "fr": "Français", "it": "Italiano",

"nl": "Nederlands", "pl": "Polski", "pt": "Português",

"fi": "Suomi", "sv": "Svenska"});

Q. How do I change the colors of the spellchecker?

A. Googiespell.css is a stylesheet. Want to change the way it appears when the spelling is 'okay'?

.googie_check_spelling_ok {

color: white;

background-color: green;

padding-left: 2px;

padding-right: 2px;

cursor: pointer;


There are a few inpage styles for looks as well(spellchecker.html),

body {
            margin: 0px;
            background-color: #FFFFFF;
        h1, h2 {
            font-size: 18px;
            font-family: verdana, helvetica, sans-serif;
            color: #333;
            margin: 0px;
            padding: 0px;
            padding-bottom: 10px;

        h3 {
            font-size: 14px;
            color: #333;
            margin: 0px;
            padding-top: 15px;
            padding-bottom: 2px;

        pre {
            margin-top: 5px;
            padding: 4px;
            background-color: #e3e2c6;
            border: 1px solid #999;

        .textarea {
            /*    START GoogieSpell reqs.*/
            line-height: 13px;
            font-size: 13px;
            padding: 0px;
            font-family: sans-serif;
            /*    END GoogieSpell reqs.*/

            width: 400px;
            height: 300px;

        .inputbox {
            /*    START GoogieSpell reqs.*/
            line-height: 13px;
            font-size: 13px;
            padding: 2px;
            font-family: sans-serif;
            /*    END GoogieSpell reqs.*/

            width: 200px;

Getting and setting the data:

Func GuiCtrlIERead()
    Return _IEPropertyGet($oTextArea, "innertext")

Func GuiCtrlIESet($string)
    _IEPropertySet($oTextArea, "innertext", $string)

The default text is stored in the HTML:

<textarea id="ta2" class="textarea" style="border: 0px">Ths is a tst</textarea>
