    Automatically capitalize letters on textbox and full name field

    Asked by jnoreman on July 15, 2017 at 03:57 PM

    How can I force capital letters and limit a field to two characters (like US States)?

    How can I create a telephone field that formats as 999-999-9999 rather than (999) 999-9999?

     

    Thanks

    1. We do not have this functionality yet but you can do this in the form level only by injecting a CSS code to your form.

    Example:

    #input_2{

    text-transform:capitalize;

    }

    Where' #input_2 is the target field ID. 

    2. You can enable input mask on the textbox field and define the format you want.

    I did find the input mask later.

    I think you need to include the capitalization rules for your forms as soon as you can. I don't know CSS, can probably learn that, but capitalization (or lack of it) makes data collection inconsistent. Suggestion: Add that to JotForm. Thanks.

    Great!

    By the way, I forgot to mention that you can also capitalize the first letter on email alerts too. It's easy, follow this guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/162-Capitalizing-the-First-Letter-of-Every-Field-Value-on-Email

    If you want to capitalize all the letters, use this workaround.

    Simply wrap the field variable you want to capitalize with the following.

    Example:

    <span style="text-transform: uppercase;">{name}</span>

    I'll also add this as a feature request.
