Format any string as upper case

Postby antimouse » 19 Apr 2014, 20:37

Manutoo and others,

Is there any way to format any string as upper case? We have the function FormatTeamName, but I wonder if there is anything similar to format texts like "Break Point" etc. If not, it would be nice to have it in a future update, if it's not too much trouble.

Thanks!

Hello,

you can change that easily in the Lang_*.txt files. Advanced text editors should let you change the case of the text.

Hey Manu,

Yeah I know. I asked it because I'm making some scoreboards now, and some of them use "Break Point" in lower case, others use "BREAK POINT" etc. And I can only associate HudInfo02 with one of them. So, it would be nice to dynamically make it upper case, just like with FormatTeamName, to reduce the amount of alternative items in code. But no problem, it's perfectly doable with lang files :)

Thanks!

Maybe you could create a font whose lower case characters actually use upper case visual. Then you'd need only 2 different items, one using the normal font, and one using the all upper case font.
