Remarks

To enable the spelling checker, set the SpellCheck.IsEnabled property to true on a text-editing control. When this spelling checker is enabled, misspelled words are underlined by using a red wavy line, as shown in the following illustration. Spelling checker is supported only when WPF provides a default dictionary. In .NET Framework 4, WPF provides dictionaries for English, French, German, and Spanish.
