Using Foundeo Spell Checker with FCKeditor

To add a spell checker button to your FCKEditor HTML form, add the following HTML:

<input type="button" 
  value="Spell Check" />

Replace yourFCKEditorInstanceNameHere with the name of your FCK editor instance.

Note that you will also need to include our spell.js file.

Does this also work on CKEditor?

We have a CKEditor Spell Checker Plugin that you can use with CKEditor, it integrates into the CKEditor toolbar.

Does this also work with ColdFusion 8, ColdFusion 9 or ColdFusion 10 RichText CFTextarea Tag?

Yes it does work when cfform format="html", but it does not work with flash forms (cfform format="flash"). Here's an example of how you can use our spell checker with ColdFusion's cftextarea tag:

<cfform action="test.cfm" method="post" format="html" id="MyForm">
	<cftextarea richtext="true" name="MyRichText" value="Hello There"></cftextarea>
	<script language="javascript" src="/spellchecker/spell.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
	<input type="button" onclick="checkFCKSpelling(this.form.MyRichText);" value="Spell Check" />
	<input type="submit" />
	<script language="javascript">
		function checkFCKSpelling(formObj) {
			spell('FCKeditorAPI.Instances.' + + '.EditorDocument.body.innerHTML');

Note a slightly different technique is required for cftextarea because ColdFusion generates a dynamic the ID for the FCKeditor instance.
