UPDATE (11/11/2013): This post is specifically for SharePoint 2007. I have a slightly different scenario for SharePoint 2010 but managed to achieve Spell Check using a different method. Here's my blog post for SharePoint 2010.

This post is a compiled version of Steve Cavanagh's blog post on How To: Spell Check an InfoPath form displayed via XmlFormView. Many are not able to follow Steve's instructions due to lack of details. See below a downloadable zip of all changes need installed for your InfoPath Spell Checker.

File Contents:

  • CustomSpellCheckEntirePage.js - This is a customized SpellCheckEntirePage.js which includes changes outlined in Steve's post above.
     
  • FormServer.aspx - Note that this will replace the exisitng FormServer.aspx - this file acts like a masterpage for all infopath forms. So this change will add the spellchecker to all infopath forms in the sharepoint farm. Only thing i changed here is to add the 'Spell Check' link before and after the form.
     
  • ReadMe.rtf - Contains instructions where to copy the files to in your MOSS WFE server.

Excellent post, I was struggling to implement the code, and this has really helped. Customer had used Infopath Desktop and assumed Spell Check would be in the web version too, as vital to their forms.

This has really helped, thanks

Have you tried this in SharePoint 2010? The FormServer.aspx files differ greatly between SP2007 and SP2010.

Hi Craig,

You are correct. I recently had to try this for SharePoint 2010 and the same solution does not work. I have posted a new post how I managed to achieve this for SharePoint 2010:
