Uppercase First Letter in Form

  1. Okay, let's say someone fills out the form on the site and the use all lowercase letters.

    For example - First name: sean

    Is their a code or script that would automatically make the first letter uppercase no matter if the prospect enters in all lowercase letters?

    For example - First name: sean (However populates as Sean)

    So that when they get an autorespond email it will start with Hello, Sean... vs. Hello, sean..

    Let me know if anyone has conquered this. I have attempted to search however have came up blank.

    Thanks for your help! :)

  2. PHP has an "upper case" word function ucwords:
    http://php.net/manual/en/function.ucwords.php

    That would be the function to use; I'm not sure where the best place to use it would be (on saving the data or when sending out the autoresponder.)

  3. You can also easily do this with some jQuery. In this case, simply apply the custom class "capitalize" (via the form admin) to any field you want capitalized. Then, add the following to your page template.

    <script type="text/javascript">
    jQuery.noConflict();
      jQuery(document).ready(function($) {
    
    		$('li.capitalize input').keyup(function(event) {
    		    var textBox = event.target;
    		    var start = textBox.selectionStart;
    		    var end = textBox.selectionEnd;
    		    textBox.value = textBox.value.charAt(0).toUpperCase() + textBox.value.slice(1);
    		    textBox.setSelectionRange(start, end);
    		});
    
      });
    </script>

    I grabbed the snippet from here and it works well in my tests.
