    I need to make a textbox first letter always capital letter.
    I know I can do a "onkeypressed" or "onkeyup" but that makes the app slow, I was wondering if there was another way of doing it?

    I found this :
    android:inputType="textCapSentences" : Is there a way to implement this on textboxes?

    Kind Regards

    Hi Gerrit,

    The link you've given is for native Android textbox, it would not have any effect on html 5 input. In general, such an attribute (autocapitalize) exists for inputs (see this page), but is not supported on most mobile platforms yet.
