Change first letter entered in a row and in a floating field entry to a capital letter

Good day,

I'm trying to figure out the best way to do this.  My form has a row that consists of a drop-down list.  When a word is chosen, it automatically enters a word in another row and also in a floating field.  I would like the words in the other row and the floating field to be capitalized.  Is this possible?

you can use as below to make first letter of string as Capital letter.


var
str = this.value // dropdown 

var str2 = this.value.charAt(0).toUpperCase() + this.value.slice(1);

console.log(str2);//Dropdown

While setting the field value, use script like below:

this.rawValue = this.rawValue.toString().toUpperCase();

I entered a script in the exit event of the row to make it work there ( this.rawValue = util.printx(">?<*",this.rawValue);
 but, I still need a script for the floating field.  Right now, whatever and however it is entered in the row, it enters it the same way in the floating field.  I need just the first letter to be capitalized

Example:  If they enter apple in the row, I would like the floating field to read Apple.

It's a Livecycle Designer form.  I entered a script in the row to make it work there but I still need a script for the floating field.

Hello,  I'm still in need of assistance.  My form is a livecycle form.  Where would I enter the scripts you provided?  Please see my reply below.
