Krishnareddy,
Welcome to JavaRanch!

Spell check is a browser feature. You cannot turn off features in the user's browser.

That's not an attribute in the standard. It must be a Firefox extension. If the same doesn't work in Safari, it likely isn't there.

HI Bear,
Can you give some detailed explanation regarding this. I am not getting this(no). You mean to say there is no such attriute/javascript code available.

Hi Jeanne,
First thanks for your reply. Can you suggest me is there any chance to disable spell check by using javascript code? If it possible, send me the code..

Thanks in advance...

We do not think that you can do it on Safari.

If you find a solution please report back.

Bear's no was in response to "In the same way,is there any attribute/css property to make disable spellcheck in safari browser?". I agree with him that it is likely you can't disable spellcheck. If there is no way of setting an attribute in HTML, there wouldn't be one in JavaScript because the attribute doesn't exist.

Bear and Jeanne are not going to find YOU the solution. We are not paid to do your work. We do not know of a solution. They have told you that countless times. You are going to have to try to find it yourself and there is probbaly not a solution at all.

If YOU find a solution please inform us.

I think "no" was pretty clear. There's no way to do it.
