Hi,

I am working in VS2017 and VB.net.

I have been trying to find how I can get spell check for a textbox that I have on a form. The user types notes in here and I need it to underline the words and then give them the ability to correct the spelling; like you would have in Word for example. I thought that It would just be a property that I would just have to turn on, but it does not look at it.
I have not been able to find anything exactly on the web, can you guys help me please or point me to whereI can learn how to do this.

Thank you

I found numerous options when I searched for "windows forms spell checker" or the like. Many of them are paid options from third-party vendors, which should be an indication that the implementation is not exactly trivial. There are also a number of examples around of using the spell-checking functionality built into Microsoft Word, which may be useful if you know that that will be installed.
