I am using an HTML editor (From DMXZone). It has a lot of tools but no spell check.
How can I add a Spell check option to check what user types in the html editor box ?

One of the editors had a spell check and I seem to remember just reading that whatever api it was using was no longer available.  There is a somewhat free solution with this project http://www.javascriptspellcheck.com/  If you use the free version, there is an occasional ad.   You could use this with jquery to check as typed.

<script type='text/javascript' src='/JavaScriptSpellCheck/include.js' ></script>
<script type='text/javascript'>$Spelling.SpellCheckAsYouType('myTextArea')</script>
	<textarea name="myTextArea"  id="myTextArea" cols="30" rows="4">
		Hello Worlb. 
		This this is a simple exampl of spellchecking As-You-Type 
		and also with a spellcehcking button.
<input type="button" value="Spell Check" onclick="$Spelling.SpellCheckInWindow('myTextArea')" />

Open in new window

I am using ASP Classic. Seems this is for ASP.net

Also. No ads, its for an intranet.

Since this is javascript/jquery you can use this in any serverside language.  Remember that asp code runs on the server before anything is sent to the browser.  Javascript runs after the code is sent to the browser.

For no ads, you would need to pay for the license for that one.  

This looks promising http://jquery-spellchecker.badsyntax.co/ although not as full featured as the first one I showed you.    There are some free open source projects like aspell but they require programming and aspell is built into this jquery-spellchekcer project.
