I have a manual agent, which asks the user for input using an inputbox. I want to change the case of the user input to Proper Case. I am trying to use Evaluate and @ProperCase but am unsuccesful. Could anyone suggest how this can be done using @Evaluate or otherwise ?

Shirish,

The following is an excerpt from the Help Database. It contains all that you need. To find this kind of information, I have a full-text index on the HelpDB. In this case, I searched for "proper".

StrConv function in LotusScript

Converts a string to a different case or character set.

Syntax
StrConv ( expr , conversionType )

Elements
expr
A string or numeric expression. A numeric expression is converted to a string.

conversionType
An integer that defines the type of conversion:
Constant name      Value      Type of conversion
SC_UpperCase      1      Uppercase
SC_LowerCase      2      Lowercase
SC_ProperCase      3      Proper case
SC_Wide      4      Single byte to double byte
SC_Narrow      8      Double byte to single byte
SC_Katakana      16      Hiragana to Katakana
SC_Hiragana      32      Katakana to Hiragana

Return value
The return value is a variant containing the result of the conversion.

Usage
The valid values for the conversionType elements listed in the preceding table are defined as constants in the file lsconst.lss. If you want to use the constants instead of numbers, include this file in your script.
ConversionType values can be combined (ored) as follows:

Any combination of SC_UpperCase, SC_LowerCase, and SC_ProperCase causes SC_ProperCase.

Combining SC_Wide and SC_Narrow is illegal.

Combining SC_Katakana and SC_Hiragana is illegal.

If combined, the following operations occur in the following order: case operation, SC_Wide, SC_Katakana.

Case operations are applied to double-byte alphanumeric characters.

If expr is the null string, the result is the null string. If expr is Null, the result is Null.

For proper case, the following numeric character codes are treated as word separators in a string literal: 0 (null), 9 (horizontal tab), 12 (form feed), 32 (space), 0x3000 (doubl-byte space). The following are treated as separators in a multi-line string: 10 (line feed), 13 (carriage return).
