    Posted: 21 Jul 2012 at 12:22am
Kind people 

I'm struggling with the concept of using javascript to convert lowercase to uppercase in all text fields in a document. I'm using this as Document Javascript:

var nameField = this.getField('Text');
nameField.setAction('Keystroke', 'forceUpperCase()');

function forceUpperCase()
        event.change = event.change.toUpperCase();

But, this only for for the Field called "Text". What about the fields called "Text1", "Text2" etc?

Is it possible to force uppercase in each field without having to use a custom keystroke script, or a validate field script.

Any help would be gratefully received.

Only the function needs to be in the doc-level. The first part of the code only needs to be executed once, possibly from the console.

What you can do is write a function that iterates over all the fields in the file (using getNthFieldName()), checks if they are text fields (using the type property) and if so, sets the keystroke action, like you did here.

Of course, you'll need to run it again if you add more fields...
