Spell Check does not work in Pega 7



The spell checker configured in harness header does not work for the text area in a section.

Error Messages

Not Applicable.

Steps to Reproduce

1) Create a Harness(Perform) and include spell checker in the header. Include the Action section into the harness.
2) Create a section and include a text area in it.
3) Create a flow action and include the above section in it.
4) Create a flow and refer the flow action.

Root Cause

Spellcheck action always performs on text area or RTE elements, which are in current document (current Iframe) only. The textarea in the section  element is in embedded document, so it is expected behavior. This embedded document gets created by “Action” section.


Perform the following local-change:

1) Use pyActionArea section to handle flow actions instead of “Action” section (or)
2) Move Spellcheck icon into inner document or section.
