text format into a variable

Recommended Posts


FM9A, X.5.6

I have a first name field, and want to parse the value as lowercase into a variable (which is then used for a pdf password...)

e.g. Chris >> chris

I have tried numerous variations:

TextStyleAdd ( name ; Lowercase)

TextFormatRemove ( name )

TextStyleRemove ( name; AllStyles )

as well as setting a global as an intermediate, but the $ insists on returning Title case (Chris)

Any suggestions?

Try the Lower() function. Text formating functions modify the styling of text, not the text itself. This styling is lost when the output is plain text only.
