Uppercase enforcement with Spry - Macromedia Exchange Dreamweaver Extensions

Problem: I want to have uppercases in the beginning of all textfield words. The length of the text must be various. Can?t figure out how to solve that with Spry. Tried Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa, but that forced me to fill in all characters. This is used for instance at firstnames, lastnames and address names. When I used max min characters it disabled the pattern function. Is there anyone with a solution. /Leif...

    I've not played much with Spry validation, but I'd have to say that this requirement isn't not always true for last names. For example folks with a two part name that is common in German and Dutch names they can include van and von as the first part of the last name and it's supposed to be lower cased.

    But why make this a validation in the first place? It seem intrusive to the user, if the script can tell the upper case should be used, there's no need for the user to perform the correction at all. That is why not just "correct" it for the user when you insert into the database, or "correct" it when you output the names in other locations?

    You might want to ask your Spry question in the Spry forums:
