    Is there a way to "force" the character writing mode for a field (lowercase or capital) ?

    Asked by besam on October 03, 2011 at 07:48 AM


    Will it be possible to adjust "automatically" the first character a customer will fill in?
    I'll explain... 
    Today, a customer will fill in his name and sometimes he'll use overall lowercase characters or sometimes he'll use a capital for the first character.
    So we'll get different writing modes of the field name as "Obama - obama - OBAMA..." 
    I want to store names always as 'Obama' - so with the first character in capital - cause I'll use in the reply confirmation mail also this name and "Hello Mr. obama" is not so kindly as "Hello Mr. Obama".  (fictive name ;-)) 
    Will there be a way to do this in Jotform? 
    Thanks for your answer !

    Unfortunately, there's no update yet about this request.

    If you're interested, you can get your form source codes and add some script that will capitalize first letters of a word.

    For example: http://www.w3schools.com/cssref/tryit.asp?filename=trycss_js_text-transform

    Thank you!
