I want to have all entered text populated into specific text fields to automatically convert to upper case. I am working in LiveCycle Designer ES2.

Can you please share the new form you shared above where value change was in the same textfield with me?

Thank you

Do you want the entire form I created or simply the code used for the text field?

I have played around with my scripts and I think I have figured it now.

But maybe you can help me with something else. I have one field for comments. Some of my users all use uppercase and the sentences become hard to read. Is it possible to convert sentences to lower case?

If you want to convert the uppercase into the lowercase you can use below script

xfa.event.change = xfa.event.change.toLowerCase(); 

You need to use this script on change event of textfield.

Sorry, got back very late last night.

Use this code in the change function for the text field

xfa.event.change = xfa.event.change.toUpperCase();

No problem. I tried that but it keeps giving me an error.

Will that work with sentences? Because I do want the first word of the each sentence to stay uppercase.

Thanks for your help.

xfa.event.change = xfa.event.change.toLowerCase();

Sorry, you need the lower case code. See above. Just overwrite the Upper to Lower in your code. I do not have code for capitalizing the first word of each sentence. I only have code to capitalize the first letter only in a field. I have not yet encountered a need for the sentence issue.

Hope that helps.

@ Vipin Bhargava in reference to post #21.  I do not see the "new form" that replaces the text in the same textfield.  Can you share it with me? I would greatly appreciate it.
