Browser Based Spell Checker for Lotus Notes

Steve Castledine  August 4 2005 04:09:57 PM
Yes I am still mad.

One of my current "playing around" projects is a cross browser spelling checker for Lotus Notes/Domino.

I see lots of solutions out there - a lot are browser dependant, and/or you have to pay for. If I got this to work would it be useful? Has it already been done?

Useful? Brilliant, I say. We get that request all the time.

I think maybe I will play around some more then - I wanted it for my dominoblog content management system - but I'm thinking I could package it up so it will work with any field/database etc.

This would indeed be great. I'm assuming your thinking of some type of AJAX idea? Query the server for the words and get a list of possibilities back?

Yes thats the idea - an AJAX model for send/request - js handling the clent side functionality and an engine on the domino server which takes requests and returns results as xml for processing.

I have the hardest part working - sending paragraphs of text to the domino server, spellchecking and returning any dodgy words - with suggestions.

Sorry for the delay, but on the topic of browser based spell-checking, I had recently posted a few entries on the topic. You may want to look at Google's spell checking API.

This is a plug-in for IE, works great.

Yes I need to look at that - one of my customers has started to use it.

My idea is creating something for notes that doesnt rely on anything but itself - and works on all browsers.
