text-transform - property - CSS3

Introduction

Today I return to share with you a CSS3 property that until recently was unknown to me. This property will allow us to capitalize, upper case and lower case any text using CSS in this way we will avoid using Javascript for it by introducing a small optimization in our application.

Examples

capitalize

Alt Text

<p class="example-text-transform">
hello this is a sample text to be able to demonstrate the use of the CSS3 text-transform property 
<p>
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
.example-text-transform {
  text-transform: capitalize;
}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

uppercase

Alt Text

<p class="example-text-transform">
hello this is a sample text to be able to demonstrate the use of the CSS3 text-transform property 
<p>
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
.example-text-transform {
  text-transform: uppercase;
}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

lowercase

Alt Text

<p class="example-text-transform">
HELLO this is a sample text to be able to demonstrate the use of the CSS3 text-transform property 
<p>
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
.example-text-transform {
  text-transform: lowercase;
}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
