Enforce Uppercase

Hi

I need a way to ensure people using my form use Uppercase in some fields. CSS will do this but when the form data is inserted in the table the case reverts to Lower.
The ideal situation would be if someone enteres lowercase,  on change would convert to uppercase or someone using lowercase in the field would generate an alert to use Uppercase ??

If you tell me what database you are using and send me you insert statement, I will send you the correct insert statement with the appropriate field being stored in upper case.

<head runat="server">

    <title>Untitled Page</title>

<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
 

function toUpper()

{

    if(window.event.keyCode >= 97 & window.event.keyCode <= 122)

    {

        window.event.keyCode = window.event.keyCode - 32;

    }

}
 

</script>

Hello Camnoc,

If you are using ASP then presumably VBScript in asp. You can simply use UCase(Request.Form("FormField")) as appropriate when building your insert statement.

Though of course it does depend on what database you are using as to whether this is worthwhile, if for example you are using SQL server and have your collation set to case-insensitive then it does not matter what case the data is stored in as any condition will match both upper and lower case characters.

Regards,

	var keychar = String.fromCharCode(key);

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!
