Hiya, wassup!

I think it's somewhere in the line of :

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1.  
  2. UCase(Text1.Text)
  3.  
  4.  
What is this for anyway?

You may also need SelStart in there

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1.  
  2. Text1.Text = UCase$(Text1.SelStart)
  3.  
  4.  
Check it, I am typing this up from memory, but SelStart makes it that whatever is typed in according to the case specified.

Try this...
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Private Sub Text1_KeyPress(KeyAscii As Integer)
  2.   Select Case KeyAscii
  3.     Case 97 To 122
  4.       KeyAscii = KeyAscii - 32
  5.   End Select
  6. End Sub

Good idea. My version will be very language-specific. The Ucase function might be a bit smarter.

Hi! I was wondering if the was any way to determine the state of the caps lock key, on or off. Of course I can capture the key events and see whether the caps lock is pressed, but that does not help. I have seen some example that looks at the characters entered in an input field to determine if the caps lock is on, but I was wondering if something is possible that is a bit more immediate to report the caps

Hi. I'm new to Visual Basic .NET, so you'll have to bear with me . . . I want to create an app that turns off CAPS LOCK when the SHIFT key is pressed. I got the code to turn off CAPS LOCK to work, but it only works when the program has the focus. How can I write an app that will do this while running in the background?

Hi, I am writting a software that requires me to make sure the Num Lock is always on and Caps Lock is always off. First, I know how to detect if Num Lock or Caps Lock is on or off (if someone is interested, let me know and I will send you the codes). Once we know if the stat of Num Lock/ Caps Lock is not what we desired, we just send the Num Lock / Caps Lock key to change the stat. From most of

I play a DirectX game and while that game is running, I would like to change the behavior of the Caps Lock key. When it's pressed, I don't want it to toggle my Caps Lock on and off, but instead send a different code instead - preferably mimicing the 4th or 5th button of a mouse being pressed. 1) Is this doable? If so... 2) What the general idea of how to approach this? TIA,
