Make All Text Entries Capital

Hi

We have a PowerApp form that is built on a SharePoint list

 

We would like all the text the user enters into the form to be in CAPITALS 

 

Anyone know if its possible to format the entries, either while typing, or when the form is saved into Capitals?

 

Thanks

Not much to do about doing this while the user types it.

However, you can use the Upper function on the field to save it at submit time.

If you are using a form, then change the Update property of the datacard and put it in an Upper() function.

Ex. if you have a DataCard that has an update property of, say, DataCardValue1.Text then unlock the datacard and change the Update Property to Upper(DataCardValue1.Text)

 

I hope this is helpful for you.

Hi @pn1995 ,

Could you please share a bit more about your scenario?

Do you want to format the entries into Capitals within your Edit form or save entries as Capitals into your SP list?

 

If you want to format the entries into Capitals while typing within the Edit form, I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in PowerApps currently.

 

As an alternative solution, you could consider save entries as Capitals values into your SP list. I agree with @pn1995 's thought almost.

I have made a test on my side, please take a try with the following workaround:1.JPG

Set the Update property of the Data card controls within your Edit form to following:

Upper(DataCardValue6.Text)   /* <-- convert original value into Capitals using Upper() function */

Note: The DataCardValue6 represents the Text Input box controls within your Edit form.

 

More details about Upper function in PowerApps, please check the following article:
