    How to capitalize all form field entries?

    Asked by mgcaledonian13 on December 23, 2013 at 02:57 AM

    Thanks for that.

    So the same should apply to UPPERCASE then for all alphabetical to APPEAR

    {UPPERCASE:fullname}

    I got the Capitalize to work OK but Uppercase is problem now.



    This is a re-post of a comment on Capitalizing the First Letter of Every Field Value on Email

    Hi,

    I think there's a misunderstanding here. You should use "CAPITALIZE" not "UPPERCASE". With this settings, only the first letter of the word would be capitalized. No such option as "UPPERCASE".

    Do you want that all your form fields entries would come in all CAPS, so instead of just for example: "Welvin", you want it to be "WELVIN" ? Unfortunately, that can't be done in our form builder. A possible way to do this is to get your form source codes and add a custom script that would capitalize all sentence or field entries. Let us know if you want this method.

    Thanks

    Right there does seem to be a misunderstanding.

    People with limited computer skills seem to not want to use the "shift" key to add information.

    The fisrt is that they put their name all in lowercase, that has been solved with the option of "CAPITALIZE", great that is that out of the way. (in Responder and Notification)

    We do have fields that would be better in all uppercase, UK Postcode G76 8HQ for example and as we are a car club the UK registration plates are ABC123 K (older system) or AB60 CDE (new system). It would be good to be able to "force" the entry to show Capitals (All Uppercase) as data is entered and show capitals (All Uppercase) in the Notification and Responder.

    If the report is published it looks unprofessional if these bits of data are shown in lowercase.
    (g76 8hq).It has to be changed manually which is a pain, especially if you have got 100+ Entries   

    Iknow that dreamweaver was able to do this with php

    $Body .= strtoupper($pcode); 

    It is so long since I used Dreamweaver I have lost the ability to use php especially in JotForm.

    Does all this make sense?

    I would have thought that "uppercase" would be of some use to others as well as myself. An update maybe soon??

    My sincere apologies for the information. It turns out the injected custom CSS codes can't make it. It's all caps in the form, but the results are still in small caps. I am really sorry.

    With that being said, we can use the form source codes with added custom script. Let me find a way and get back to you, maybe later today.

    Thanks

    Here's an example modified form source codes: https://shots.jotform.com/welvin/pages/uppercase-all-entries.html. Kindly submit a test entry and use your own email address in the email field so you will receive the example email output. The output when creating reports should be the same.

    Then, let me know if you want this method so I can have the same to your form. Of course, share to us your form URL.

    Thanks

    Also, to avoid having a lot of codes into your webpage, you can have the modified source codes as an iFrame to your page.

    1. Just save the modified form source codes as an HTML file.

    2. Upload this HTML file to your own server.

    3. Have it as an iFrame via this iFrame Generator: http://7thspace.com/webmaster_tools/iframe_generator.html

    Example:

    <iframe src="https://shots.jotform.com/welvin/pages/uppercase-all-entries.html" style="border:2px #FFFFFF none;" name="myiFrame" scrolling="no" frameborder="1" marginheight="0px" marginwidth="0px" height="550px" width="690px"></iframe>

    Where https://shots.jotform.com/welvin/pages/uppercase-all-entries.html should be your own HTML file.

    Thanks

    Thanks for giving us the Form URL. I have adjusted the custom script made by my colleague Welvin, you may use this in conjunction with the full source code of the form

    Here is the custom script that you needed to insert with before </form>


     

    This should make the Postal/ZIP code, Model of MG and License Plate textboxes to uppercase themselves. On behalf of my colleague,if you need further assistance, please do not hesitate to ask. Thank you

    While this is a bit old thread, I wanted to update it with a link to this thread here: http://www.jotform.com/answers/579753#579925 that shows how with a bit of inline CSS emails can also have uppercase letters shown, without ever leaving your trusty JotForm Builder.
