    Capital Letter for name surname entry and uppercase postcode letters

    Asked by careconfidential on June 19, 2014 at 04:57 AM

    Is there a way to make sure that when users enter their name, surname and postcode they are forced to use capital letters for the first letter of their names and in the postcode. Also will this be downloaded in this format?

    Many thanks

    Thank you for contacting us.

    This is possible to capitalize the first letter of Names on your email notification. On your email notification, instead of using {firstName} and {lastName}, use {CAPITALIZE:firstName} and {CAPITALIZE:lastName} instead. Note that, this may not work on your post code if you want all the letters in upper case. And also if, the first character is a number. On my example below, the Name field is fullName, to capitalize the first letter, i used {CAPITALIZE:fullName}.

    Let us know if you need further help.

    Thanks this is a good start. What I need is to be able the form to be correct as the user enters information. The reason for this is that I then download the spreadsheet of all the submissions and import it into my database. I'm not too bothered what is shown in the emails.

    To achieve this please inject the following css code:







    The postal code is set to be all in Uppercase. If you wish it also to have only the first letter please change the code to capitalize instead.

    You can test your form here:
