MS Word spellcheck not working in VB.Net project

Hi Experts,

I am using the MS Word spellchecker in my VB.Net project copied from here.

http://www.vb-helper.com/howto_net_spellcheck.html

When the project is run from the VB2010 SDK it works perfectly. When run stand alone the spellcheck box does not pop up. If you check in the task manager it shows the spell checker running and if you click on it it pops up and is useable.

You could try something like this .

TextBox1.ZOrder (fmTop) 'Place TextBox1 on Top of z-order 

Open in new window

You are switching to the application with your click in task manager not clicking the button in your project, right? Perhaps the window is behind the main application. Try alt tab to see if it's hidden.

There's another spellcheck here ,

Randy Downs,

Alt+Tab does bring the spellchecker to the front. It always pops to the front when used with Word and when run in my application from within VB2010. Do you know how I can get it to the front when the application runs stand alone?

Bring the window to the top does seem like the best solution since it's found with an AL TAB.
