Hi Folk,

I am trying to have a spell check for a textarea / Input field, below is my code tried multiple options available online none worked for me.

<ion-textarea autocomplete="on" spellcheck="true" autocorrect="on"></ion-textarea>

I just had the same problem yesterday. my solution is

<ion-textarea autocomplete="true" autocorrect="on"></ion-textarea>

it worked for me at least.


@yardarrat - would you mind sharing your code snippet for reference to check where i am going wrong with this.


There is nothing more I can share with you, Sorry.

The docs state that the input properties on ion-textarea called autocomplete and autocorrect can bothe either have the value „on“ or „off“. For whatever reason I had to use autocomplete=„true“ though. Spellcheck however is not a property of ion-textarea.


Did you managed to fix this issue? and how?
