musclejack,

Aeros is correct , you have to add the rest of the string - my code makes just the first toupper and nothing else

Hope it helps


# region Mask Word
/// <summary>
/// Masks the first character of each word in the string as Upper Case
/// </summary>
/// <param name="wordToMask">Input string</param>
/// <returns>Masked Word</returns>
private static string MaskWord(string wordToMask)
{
      string maskedWord="";;
      wordToMask=wordToMask.Trim();
      string[] namePieces=wordToMask.Split(' ');
      for (int counter=0;counter < namePieces.Length; counter++)
      {
            if ((namePieces[counter]!=null)&&(namePieces[counter].Trim().Length!=0))
            {
                  string currentWord=namePieces[counter].ToString();
                  int lengthOfCurrentWord=0;

                  // Make the first character of the word to Upper case
                  maskedWord+= currentWord[0].ToString().ToUpper();
                  
                  lengthOfCurrentWord=currentWord.Trim().Length-1;
                  if (lengthOfCurrentWord > 0)
                  {
                        // Add the remaining part of the word
                        maskedWord+= currentWord.Substring(1,lengthOfCurrentWord).ToLower();
                  }
            }
            maskedWord+=" ";
      }

you can also use the strConv function, with the VbStrConv.ProperCase parameter:

Dim mystring As String = "howdy"
Dim FinalString As String = strConv(mystring, VbStrConv.ProperCase)
