Instance Property

spellCheckingType

The spell-checking style for the text object.

Declaration

@property(nonatomic) UITextSpellCheckingType spellCheckingType;

Discussion

This property determines whether spell-checking is enabled or disabled during typing. With spell-checking enabled, the text object generates red underlines for all misspelled words. If the user taps on a misspelled word, the text object presents the user with a list of possible corrections.

The default value for this property is UITextSpellCheckingTypeDefault, which enables spell-checking when autocorrection is also enabled. The value in this property overrides the spell-checking setting set by the user in Settings > General > Keyboard.
