Hi,
I have big difficulties adding spelling support to my editor.
I need Italian dictionary so a plain wordlist spellchecker is not the
right choice.

I am using Helios as development platform.

I tried installing eSpell 3.4.2 from the bdaum site, is seems to work,
but I've not been able to find a suitable dictionary (it is said it
works with OpenOffice dictionaries, but I've been unable to make it work
in practice).

Anyhow this wouldn't help me even if worked because I add the plugin
(com.bdaum,SpellChecker3) to my RCP app dependencies it refuses to start
with error:

....

The plugin is installed in eclipse and somewhat working.
What am I doing wrong?

In general:
I need spell-checking in my editor.
Is this the right path?
Should I use some other plugin?

Please advise.
Regards
Mauro

No takers?

I will rephrase in another way.
Perhaps I will be lucky ;)

I need a full TextEditor oriented towards Desktop Publishing.
I do not really need many of the advanced fetures (Styles, alignment
etc.) because I use my own markup, but I *do* need wordwrapping, text
highlighting and spell-checking.

Additional constraint is I need to edit a (possibly very long) String
and not a file, otherwise I could use OpenOffice integration via UNO (I
know it's overblown, but it would work).

My current incarnation is based on AbstractTextEditor and I have several
problems with it:
Text Highlightingg works ok.
Wordwrapping somewhat works, but is very buggy.
I have not been able to make Spellchecking work at all.
I still have some unresolved issues with drag/drop of text.

Question is:
Is there some kind of Text-editor I can integrate?
Othewise, can some kind soul help me sorting my problems (pointing me to
the relevant documentation)?

Thanks in Advance
Mauro

Take a look at
http://www.eclipse.org/eclipse/platform-text/development/rcp /examples/index.html
The only thing which is harder to do is spell checking. Depending on the
outcome of our investigations (see
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=185695) it might be easier
in 3.7.

Thanks for Your answer,
I know that page and several others on the same spirit.

Unforunately IMHO TextEdit is not a generic editing component and, most
likely will never be (cfr.:
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=35779).

It seems much more a very specific IDE-oriented and IDE-integrated part.
Even if the current spelling engine is somehow detatched from JDT it
still remains a non-optimal engine, geared toward languages (like
english) that do not heavily use word modification. Integration of a
"serious" spelling engine (hunspell? aspell?) would be much better.

The real question is:

Is someone aware of a good (possibly free) editing *component* that can
be used with RCP?

I was investigating jintilla, but that seems a bit dead :(

Other things are really too big (see:
http://wiki.services.openoffice.org/wiki/OpenOffice_Eclipse_ Integration)

Is anyone aware of some other alternative?

Thanks in advance
