Object Type Path to CheckControlsInParentContainer


If the CheckControlsInParentContainer property value is set to true, the spell checker activates the Check As You Type mode for a control on a form when this control gets a focus. So, misspelled words in a control’s text are underlined whenever a user enters the control.


You can disable spell check for a particular control at design time by setting the CanCheckText on … field value in the Property Grid to false.
