Spell checking

Spell checking

I have a bunch of words in a listbox that I want to spell check(with Microsoft Word 2000 maybe?). I would like the routine to delete any word in the listbox that is incorrectly spelled. I don’t want the user to have to ‘OK’ each and every word; I’d like it to be totally automated.

There are a number of well-known articles available at this and other sites about how to connect to Word to do the spell checking. To remove text from a box, you need to use the Clipboard functionality built into your TextBox control. The SelStart, SelLength and SelText properties are typically used with Cut/Copy/Paste operations. If you wanted to remove text that was highlighted, the easy thing to do is this:

TextBox.SelText = ""

This will remove the selected text. In a cut/copy/paste operation, you would move the text to the Windows Clipboard. In this case, you don’t want to save it, so you can just chuck it out the window.
