Javascript to format text to all caps in Acrobat 5.0 Form

I would like to write a Javascript function in the "format" section of a text box on an Acrobat form.  I have tried a number of things, however it will not work because of definitions.  I do not know how it needs to see things, however all I want is a format script to run so that whatever a user types into a the text box on the Acrobat form is auto formatted to ALL caps.

HELP!!

TIA

If you want every keystroke to be converted to caps right away, use this script in the "Custom Keystroke Script" field:

event.change = event.change.toUpperCase();

Karl Heinz KremerCommented:
Open up the properties dialog for your text box. Select the "Format" tab and select "Custom" for the category. In the "Custom Format Script" field enter the following JavaScript:


event.value = event.value.toUpperCase();

This will (at the time the new text field value is commited) convert the string to all caps. The string that is actually stored in the text field is still as it was entered, it's just the export value that gets modified. And, while you are entering the data, you will not see the upper case characters.

Is this what you want?

Do you want to see them as you type? The caps string is displayed one you leave the field (with either RETURN, or TAB).
