In vb.net you can convert a string to be upper or lower
by using string.toupper or string.toLower


Does anybody know if there is a function that make your string to be sentence case.

Suppose you have a txtSurname text box

and whenever the user input a surname (SMITH) YOU WANT TO TO CONVERT IT TO (Smith)change the first Letter to Capital and remaining to lower.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

StrConv("washington", vbProperCase) will convert to Washington.

I think this is what you're looking for.
