In Adobe Acrobat 9 I have created a fillable PDF form.  In this form I have a text field which I'd like to always be in uppercase no matter what is filled in the form.

I think I need to go to the Format tab, select the Custom format and enter something in the Custom Format Script, but I don't know what to enter.  I tried entered "UpperCase()" but that didn't work.

I don't really know Java so I'm just guessing here.

Thanks in advance.

It didn't work when I put it under the Custom Format Script, but when I put it in the Custom Keystroke Script it worked so thank you very much!
