Description

This function lets you call the MUSHclient spell-checker from a script on any arbitrary text string.

Note that if the spell-check engine has not been initialised (eg. the DLL is not present, or the spell check dictionary is not there), it returns the Empty variant (or nil in Lua).

You supply a string of text to be checked.

The corrected string is returned, after the spellchecker dialog box has been invoked, as many times as necessary, for each misspelt word. If the dialog box is canclled them the NULL variant (or nil in Lua) is returned.


Available in MUSHclient version 3.85 onwards.



VBscript example

result = SpellCheckDlg _
  ("Twas brillig, and the slithy toves Did gyre and gimble in the the wabe")

if IsEmpty (result) then
  Note "Spell check cancelled"
else
  Note "Corrected string: " & result
end if


Lua example

result = SpellCheckDlg  (
  "Twas brillig, and the slithy toves Did gyre and gimble in the the wabe")

print (type (result))

if result == nil then
  Note "Spell check cancelled"
else
  Note ("Corrected string: ", result)
end -- if


Return value

If the spell checker is not available, or if the spellcheck dialog box is cancelled, an Empty variant (or nil in Lua).

Otherwise, the supplied string is returned, with any misspelt words corrected.
