Spellcheck on outside application - newbie

Discussion in 'Python' started by Evan McPeters, Jun 19, 2004.

  1. Hi,

    I am very new to Python so please forgive my ignorance.

    I need to develop a program that will spell check a word processing window
    that is open in another application. I do not have access to the the API or
    any other code for this application, so I was hoping that the spell checker
    could simply do it's job on whatever the user's active window is.

    Does this make sense. Does anyone have an idea about how to start this.

    Thanks in advance.

    What is this 'other application' ?

  4. It is a database application that has an area for word processing in it.
    That is the area that I want to spellcheck.

    Thanks.
