Public Enumeration CharacterCasing
Member nameDescription
Lower

Characters typed into a TextBox are converted to lowercase.

Normal

Characters typed into a TextBox are not converted.

Upper

Characters typed into a TextBox are converted to uppercase.

The value of this enumeration does not affect characters that are added to a TextBox programmatically.

The following example shows how to use the property to convert all characters to uppercase that are manually entered into a TextBox.

    <!-- The CharacterCasing property of this TextBox is set to "Upper" which 
         causes all manually typed characters to be converted to uppercase. -->
    <TextBox CharacterCasing="Upper" Width="100" />
  </StackPanel>

            //Create TextBox
            TextBox myTextBox = new TextBox();

            // The CharacterCasing property of this TextBox is set to 
            // "Upper" which causes all manually typed characters to 
            // be converted to upper case.
            myTextBox.CharacterCasing = CharacterCasing.Upper;
            myStackPanel.Children.Add(myTextBox);
            this.Content = myStackPanel;
        }
    }
