This protocol is implemented by objects in the responder chain that can correct a misspelled word. See the NSSpellChecker class description for more information.

  • Replaces the selected word in the receiver with a corrected version from the Spelling panel. (required)

    Declaration

    Swift

    func changeSpelling(_ sender: AnyObject?)

    Objective-C

    - (void)changeSpelling:(id)sender

    Discussion

    This message is sent by the NSSpellChecker to the object whose text is being checked. To get the corrected spelling, ask sender for the string value of its selected cell (visible to the user as the text field in the Spelling panel). This method should replace the selected portion of the text with the string that it gets from the NSSpellChecker.
