Yup. Modify the base class to achieve this. Future versions of c5 have this done for you: !abbrowse.clw make incremental locator case insens when nocase set: !ABBrowse.clw IncrementalLocatorClass.TakeKey CAse IF SELF.NOCASE THEN !!!JJK MOD SELF.Shadow = SELF.Shadow & CHOOSE(KEYCODE()=SpaceKey,'',UPPER(CHR(Key))) ELSE SELF.Shadow = SELF.Shadow & CHOOSE(KEYCODE()=SpaceKey,'',CHR(Key)) END Then if the key is upper, the locator is upper. --- Jim Kane
