Squiggly For Mac Publisher's description
A spell checking engine for Flash Player and Adobe AIR
The Squiggly library allows you to easily add spell checking functionality in any Flex 3 based text control.
Squiggly is an ActionScript based spell checking library for developers who work in Flex Builder, Flash, or other IDEs that support ActionScript.
The distribution package consists of a utility for building your own spelling dictionaries, a sample English dictionary, an Action Script package that checks individual words for spelling accuracy, and sample code that demonstrates вЂњcheck as you typeвЂќ functionality.
While the included UI class requires the Flex SDK, the core spell checking engine can be used in pure Flash applications without any dependency on Flex packages.
Squiggly does not contain any platform specific code. As such, it should work similarly across all platforms that the Flash Player 10 runs on.
NOTE: The spelling suggestion algorithm for this release is based on English phonological rules. As such, it should only be used with an English dictionary for checking English text. The plan is to address this limitation in a future release of this project.
WARNING: This release of Squiggly is a technology preview and is designed for evaluation purposes only. The software contained within the download is not final. While the functionality is fairly complete, Adobe does not make any guarantees for additional future releases of this package, nor for backward compatibility of its API, product behavior, or runtime environments supported.
Here are some key features of "Squiggly":
В· Core Spell Checking Engine (pure Action Script)
В· Checks a given word against a dictionary to see if it is correctly spelled or not.
В· For words that cannot be found in the dictionary, returns a list of spelling suggestions.
В· An AIR utility to create your very own spelling dictionary from a text based word list.
В· UI Class (requires Flex SDK 3.x)
В· Misspelling detection in any Flex 3 text control.
В· The indication of a misspelled word throughвЂ¦вЂ¦a red squiggly line!
В· Right mouse context menu display of spelling suggestions.
В· Check as you type: the spelling of a word can be checked as soon as the user hits the space bar.
What's New in This Release:Features:
В· This release introduces a new library AdobeSpellingUITLF.swc, which adds support for TLF TextFlow through the new public class SpellUIForTLF. Please see the ASDocs for further information on how to enable spell checking in ActionScript applications using TLF.
With the addition of TLF support, spell checking can now be added to the following 6 component types:
В· MX components: TextArea, TextInput and RichTextEditor
В· Spark components: TextArea and TextInput
В· TLF TextFlow
В· Several new classes have been exposed that were previously hidden under SpellUI, such as the Highlighter, the Tokenizer, and configuration related classes. These classes will offer developers greater customizability of how Squiggly behaves in their Flex and ActionScript applications. Please see the ASDocs for further information on the new classes.
В· Finally, textfield event handling has been added to SpellUI for FOCUS_OUT, FOCUS_IN, SCROLL, RENDER and CHANGE events.
