SCAYT is undefined error in IE 11

Reported by: M Owned by:

Keywords: Cc:


Hi there.. I have a C# .Net web app. I have just upgraded from CKEditor v3.6.2 to v 4.6.4. When I load my web app I get the following error: "JavaScript runtime error: 'SCAYT' is undefined" on line on line 956 of ckeditor.js on this code


I do not get this error in Firefox. Our production environment is moving to IE 11 soon.

Can you assist me?

Thanks Mike

FYI: The SCAYT feature was working using CKEditor v3.6.2

There is no version 4.6.4 yet. Did you meant 3.6.4 or 4.x ? Which CKEditor version you use exactly?

Did you clear cache?

comment:4 Changed 9 years ago by M

Can you describe how I would do that, please? Thx

Also, more helpful data. I don't receive the error in IE 8.0 but the Spell Checker doesn't work in IE 8 with CKEditor v4.6.4

I just cleared the cache. Still having the same error.

comment:7 Changed 9 years ago by M

My bad. I just read your question regarding the version. It's v4.4.6 Apologies

comment:8 Changed 9 years ago by Jakub Ś

Ok, now that we got version and cache out of the way, please attach build-config.js file.

Additionally please tell me:

  1. if you have used one of predefined packages or perhaps have used builder to create CKEditor instance.
  1. Have you tried running standalone CKEditor on your server - does this error happen then or only when CKEditor is used with your application?
  1. Have you got any core code customization or CKEditor third-party plugins that might influence this behaviour? Perhaps you have made some extra plugin for SCAYT in your version 3.x?
  2. Finally have you got any custom plugins installed in your IE11? Any other spell checkers perhaps that might conflict with SCAYT?

Thanks for the response:

1) I have attached build-config.js

2) I'm not sure what you mean by standalone CKEditor on the server. I opened samples/index.thml and it displayed fine. Is that what you were aksing?

3) We have modified contents.css but that's the only core component we have changed

4) There are no custom plugins to my knowledge. It's a standard IE 11 install that is division wide at our company. I have not added any plugins either.

I attached config.js by accident. Could you delete that file? Thanks

Another interesting clue. In config.js, the setting for

config.scayt_srcUrl = "http://<myServer>/spellcheck/lf/scayt/scayt.js";

is causing the error.

When I comment out that setting and leave the other two setting uncommented, the Spell Checker seems to work

config.scayt_autoStartup = true;
//config.scayt_srcUrl = "http://<MyServer>/spellcheck/lf/scayt/scayt.js";

Any ideas why?

Perhaps you had a SCAYT server installed. In this case, please contact with team which provides this service.

I'm closing the issue as it was a configuration problem, not a bug.
