Textmanagement missing convert to propercase

Recommended Posts

flabes

Find in Helpfile Uppercase and lowercase.

But I did not find Propercase.

(Convert First letter in Upper- rest in lowercase)

Any Idea where to find this function?

Hallo Water,

I have downloaded yr excelEx

It is great to see, what your Functions are doing and i keep it for further use.

But it doesn't solve my Problem.

I am Catching from a Website the deliveryadress.

Sometimes I get this:

frank nobody

mainstreet 24

frankfurt

I like to have that:

(This is how it looks after conversion into Propercase with VB)

Frank Nobody

Mainstreet 24

Frankfurt

That means:

In Visual Basic I have 3 possibilities.

Convert into Uppercase, Lowercase and Propercase

Cant find anything like this in your ExcelEx.

Any more Ideas?

You need to click on the link he posted, there's a snippet of code there for casing the strings like you asked for.

This is what I use, but it's probably not very Unicode friendly.

Func _TitleCaseString($s_String) ; modified _StringProper function, correctly capitalizes after ' ( ) and numbers
    If IniRead($sIniFile, "Settings", "AutoCorrect", 1) = 0 Then Return $s_String
    Local $iX = 0
    Local $CapNext = 1
    Local $s_nStr = ""
    Local $s_CurChar
    For $iX = 1 To StringLen($s_String)
        $s_CurChar = StringMid($s_String, $iX, 1)
        Select
            Case $CapNext = 1
                If StringRegExp($s_CurChar, "[a-zA-Z\xC0-\xFF0-9]") Then
                    $s_CurChar = StringUpper($s_CurChar)
                    $CapNext = 0
                EndIf
            Case Not StringRegExp($s_CurChar, "[a-zA-Z\xC0-\xFF'0-9]")
                $CapNext = 1
            Case Else
                $s_CurChar = StringLower($s_CurChar)
        EndSelect
        $s_nStr &= $s_CurChar
    Next
    Return $s_nStr
EndFunc   ;==>_TitleCaseString

There is also a _StringProper function in the Strings.au3 file, that this is based off of, but that works like the Proper function in Excel and has many issues with text casing.

Exactly. ExcelEX has - as the name implies - to do with Excel, not text processing ;)
