Hi Experts,
I have a aspx page which uses a Master Page.  I have a text field inside the Content Placeholder.  I want to change the data to Uppercase whenever it is entered thru a Javascript.  The question is, how would I access the textfield in Javascript?  Please let me know.  Thank you very much in advance.

you need to apply a js function to the unchange event of your form control

use the touppercase js method to change the value.something like
document.getElementById('yourElement').value=document.getElementById('yourElement').toUppercase()

you may also apply the same when the formis submitted

you probably should handle this server side if you can

Thank you skullnobrains,
I tried your line and got the below error message.  In fact the javascript fails and gives me this error.  When I remove the .value from the line, I get the 'null' value.  But, javascript still runs.  Any idea?  Thank you again for your help.

I am testing this line
-------------------------------------------
var fname = document.getElementById('txtFName').value;

Error Message
---------------------------------

Then check your HTML, since no object named 'txtFName' may be defined.

Hi skullnobrains and Sar1973,  I really appricate your answers.  But I don't know why it did not work for me.  I am not experts on this either.  I am really sorry, but I provided my reply honestly.  Please look below for my explanation.  Hope that helps.

Here is what I did in my page load.

txtDate.Attributes.Add("onblur", "return ValidDate(this)");

This is my aspx program.

<script type="text/javascript">

     function checkdate(input) {

            var Day = input.value.split("/")[0];
            var Month = input.value.split("/")[1];
            var Year = input.value.split("/")[2];

            input.value = Day + "/" + Month.toUpperCase() + "/" + Year;
     }

</script>
