ODK application for data collection for small scale fisheries

Dear All,

Thanks to ODK and advice of some of the group members we developed an application for small scale fisheries data collection, which is now successfully used in a number of west and east African countries.

In order to share our experience and make this available, we launched a special website for this:

www.netfish.org

kind regards

Hi,
I would like to take this opportunity to ask you the following question:
on a odk xml form, how can I make an input automatically converted in
capital letter (UpperCase).
in advance, thanks.
Amal

This would require a code change.

The functions to support this are defined in the Xforms 3.0 spec, but are
not implemented in the underlying software library we use (javarosa).

Thanks, Mitch.
as alternative, I want to force users to write input with capital letters
only; for this, I define the constraint below (witch does not work well):
constraint="regex(., '[A-ZA-Z]{}')"
please, how would I make this constraint allow " any number of these
capital letters"?
i.e what to put in these braces {} to specify that I allow any number of
capital letters?
Best regards,

use '[A-Z]*'

This should match 0 or more capital letters.

If that doesn't work, try:

'^[A-Z]*$'

The ^ pins the match to start at the very beginning of the input, the $
pins the match to end at the very end.

Mitch,
your two suggestions have worked well; many tanks!
On the same form, I have created a column named " order_number"; and I want
its value for each record (the form's records) to be, the automatically
generated order number of the record;
I've tried many ways witch do not work yet; your help, please.
Best regards,
