I was hoping this would be easy, but doesn't seem to be.

I wanted to change a field in a DW so it has an editmask. The mask would
allow only alphanumeric AND in uppercase. I want to ensure only A-Z and 0-9
are allows (no spaces, dashes, periods, etc).

I can do one or the other, but not both in DW property settings. I was
hoping I could simply set it there but I cannot.

Any idea if it can be done somehow in properties?

Thanks!

The answer remains much the same, unfortunately. You probably need to catch
this in code, or switch the lower-alpha characters to uppercase as they're
being entered.
