Text Field - lower case restriction

Is there a straight forward way of restricting a text field to accept only lower case alphanumeric characters ( not using some workflow exec steps to check for the cases ) ?

Thanks

I dont think there is a straight forward way, If you find it, Please let me know.

A workaround, Please write a rule, when ever value is entered in one field, a rule is fired and the text is converted to lowercase in another field.

Re: Text Field - lower case restriction

There is a new feature for the rules in 7.5.
You can use the same field in the Dependencies and in the Result Fields section at the same time.
So you can write an SQL which takes the users input, convert it to lower case and write it back to the field as the user leaves the field in browser.

As Mahendran said, but in 7.5 you don't need a second field.

Kind regards,

Mike,
Thanks for the Info, I use 7.1 so I am not aware of this.
