Value Description
"__.dic" The corresponding OpenOfficeDictionary is added to the TXSpellChecker.Dictionaries collection (e.g. "en_US.dic" for the US english dictionary).
"__.txd" The corresponding UserDictionary is added to the TXSpellChecker.Dictionaries collection (e.g. "MyUserDictionary.txd" for an user dictionary that is located in the default dictionary folder).
"(Auto)" That Dictionary is added to the TXSpellChecker.Dictionaries collection that equals the language of the application environment. If the default dictionary folder does not contain such a dictionary, a dictionary is chosen that corresponds roughly to the environment language (e.g. the application environment is "en_GB", but the default dictionary folder only contains an "en_US" and a "de_DE" dictionary. In this case, the "en_US" dictionary is chosen.). In all other cases (e.g. a German environment, but no German dictionary available) the "en_US" dictionary or (if no "en_US" dictionary available) the first dictionary in the default dictionary folder is loaded. The TXSpellChecker.Language Property is set to "(none)", if the default dictionary folder does not contain any dictionaries.
"(none)" No dictionary is set.


An exception is thrown, if there is no corresponding dictionary ib the default dictionary folder.
