Re-use iNotes spell check

Hi all,

Hard one here...

Does anyone know how to integrate the existing iNotes spell checker in a notes web application?

Are there any undocumented functions I can call for that?

I tried looking in the iNotes design myself, but iNotes uses some weird url's like:
For new mail doc:
For spell check form:

If anyone can tell me how the server reads these url's, it *might* help me find the core functions/forms/pages/... myself...

Thanks in advance!

I doubt that you can without accessing the C - API through the DLL's

It is probably very tightly integrated.

I hope this helps !

Well, you can't because the dictionary is on the client, so says IBM: http://www-1.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?rs=0&q1=spell+check+web&uid=swg21090798&loc=en_US&cs=utf-8&cc=us&lang=en

The .dic file would have to be present on the server in the data directory or a directory that can be accessed webside and then you'd need to figure out how to access it.  IBM's note suggests that you employ a third-party web tool for this.

Putting the .dic file in the data directory is not a problem, just need to figure out how to access it...

Any clues?
What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Try putting in the html directory on the server and using an include virtual= "./this.dic"

Ok, but what functions do I call to access the .dic file?

So sorry,  I haven't a clue!

I would check the web for those third party dictionaries that IBM refers to and see how they call their dictionaries, or find a site that does spell check and see if the view source has a similar example.

Maybe one of these has an example or can provide a better solution:
