Topic: mdbInput text-capitalize class

1001albertpadilla free asked 4 years ago

I have this code input mdbInput type="text" required [(ngModel)]="lastName" name="lastName" id="lastName" class="form-control form-control-sm custom-input-font text-capitalize">

I'm using text-capitalize class to TitleCase format what the user is writing. However, when the user types juan carlo -- this gets formatted to Juan Carlo in the display only. The [(ngModel)]="lastName" value remains juan carlo. I want to retain the TitleCase format in the ngModel. Is there an available class to do this?

Dear @1001albertpadilla

Below an example of simple function which capitalize the first letter of all words in a string:


text: string;

  ucFirstAllWords(str: string) {
    const pieces = str.split(' ');
    for (let i = 0; i < pieces.length; i++) {
      let j = pieces[i].charAt(0).toUpperCase();
      pieces[i] = j + pieces[i].substr(1);
    return pieces.join(' ');

and HTML

<div class="container">
  <div class="row">
    <div class="col-md-6">
      <div class="md-form">
          (ngModelChange)="text = ucFirstAllWords($event)"
          class="form-control form-control-sm custom-input-font text-capitalize"
        <label for="form1" class="">Example label</label>
        <p>Look at me! {{ text }}</p>

Hope it helps!

Best Regards, Bartosz.
