Reply to: XMAX API call for Thesaurus

Currently there are only APIs available to access spell checking suggestions from the spell checker (GetSpellingResult). This applies to both XMetaL Author up to 8.0 and XMAX up to 7.0, as well as the soon to be released XMAX 8.0.

The ability to show the thesaurus directly (via API) is on our feature request list but not yet scheduled for any releases. Currently the closest you could get would be to use ShowSpellChecker and then switch to the Thesaurus tab (you might try using SendKeys() to do that).

Which feature would be most useful to you (if you had to choose)?
GetSynonyms() + GetAntonyms + etc…
