Default Help with a rule

Hello all

Im just trying to figure out how to create a rule that changes text to lower case but keeps acronyms in a job title all CAPS.
I have attached a jpg with the example.

The title in french is Spécialiste en services financiers, PME

that info is pulled into the start of the paragraph which I applied a rule applied that changes it the entire Title to lowercase

But I need the PME to remain all caps

any help would be greatly appricated

There is no way for FusionPro to decipher what is a title and what is an acronym. If you can split these into 2 separate fields; one for "Title", another for the acronym "credentials". This will allow you to apply 2 different case rules to each field.

Try this:
// This function goes in the rule or in JavaScript Globals:
function ToLowerCase(string, leaveAllCapsWords)
    function WordToLowerCaseUnicode(word)
        if (leaveAllCapsWords && word == word.toUpperCase())
            return word;
        return word.toLowerCase();

    return String(string).replace(/\S+/g, WordToLowerCaseUnicode);

// Usage:
return ToLowerCase("Spécialiste en services financiers, PME", true);
// OR:
return ToLowerCase(Field("Your Field Name"), true);

I am happy to provide help and answers to questions when I can; however, there is no guarantee that I, or anyone else on this forum, will be able to answer all questions or fix any problems. If I ask for files to clarify an issue, I might not be able to look at them personally.

How To Ask Questions The Smart Way

The correct spellings are JavaScript, FusionPro, and MarcomCentral (each with two capital letters and no spaces). Acceptable abbreviations are JS, FP, and MC (or MCC). There is no "S" at the end of "Expression" or "Printable"! The name of the product is FusionPro, not "Fusion". "Java" is not is not the same as JavaScript.

Check out the JavaScript Guide and JavaScript Reference! FusionPro 8.0 and newer use JavaScript 1.7. Older versions use JavaScript 1.5.

return "KbwbTdsjqu!spdlt\"".replace(/./g,function(w){return String.fromCharCode(w.charCodeAt()-1)});
