Eggplant seems to be chock full of time-saving routines, but I can’t seem to find one for changing the case of a text item. Has anyone come up with a straight-forward way to change the case of a text item?
I could of course write a function that does this, but I thought I’d first try to tap into the Eggplant community and see if I couldn’t save myself a bit of time (and perhaps learn something).
Thanks in advance.
And of course just as I post this, I come across the entry in the manual for how to do this… I will say that it was rather hard to find though.
Moderators, please feel free to delete this post. I don’t seem able to do it myself.
Since you brought it up, we might as well let people know that the functions are called toUpper() and toLower() – in case anyone else is looking, too!
Just for fun, here’s an example that capitalizes the first character of every word in some text:
set text to "eggplant is really amazing"
repeat with each word of text by reference
set the first character of it to toUpper(the first character of it)
--> Eggplant Is Really Amazing
