Evaluate if a string is uppercase in classic ASP (vbScript)

In classic ASP (using VBScript) I need to evaluate a string and determine if it's all uppercase.
Does anyone know if this is possible in ASP?

Hi.
This does not seem to work?

The following error is shown...

----
Microsoft VBScript runtime  error '800a01a8'
Object required: '[undefined]'
----

Here is the code used:

<%
Dim re, targetString
Set rs = New RegExp
With re
  .Pattern = "^[A-Z].*$"
  .Global = False
  .IgnoreCase = False
End With
targetString = "HELLO"

response.write (re.Test(targetString))
%>

Any Ideas?

Sorry - should read as follows. Had put rs in place of an re.


<%
Dim re, targetString
Set re = New RegExp
With re
  .Pattern = "^[A-Z].*$"
  .Global = False
  .IgnoreCase = False
End With
targetString = "HELLO"
 
response.write (re.Test(targetString))
%>

A correction to disallow "" or HeLLO.

Change: ".*" and to "+" as below:
<%
Dim re, targetString
Set re = New RegExp
With re
  .Pattern = "^[A-Z]+$"
  .Global = False
  .IgnoreCase = False
End With
targetString = "HELLO"
 
response.write (re.Test(targetString))
%>
