Convert Character in Selection Range

To convert characters in Selection Range, add the seventh line to our Tutorial macro:

[JavaScript]

document.selection.Text = "EmEditor supports macros.";
document.selection.NewLine();
document.selection.Text = "\tEmEditor is a text editor.";
document.selection.CharLeft( false, 12 );
document.selection.DeleteLeft( 15 );
document.selection.CharRight( true, 9 );
document.selection.ChangeCase( eeCaseUpperCase );

[VBScript]

document.selection.Text = "EmEditor supports macros."
document.selection.NewLine
document.selection.Text = Chr(9) & "EmEditor is a text editor."
document.selection.CharLeft False, 12
document.selection.DeleteLeft 15
document.selection.CharRight True, 9
document.selection.ChangeCase eeCaseUpperCase

Save the above macro and run it in a new EmEditor window. Notice that the characters of the selected text have converted to upper case:

TEXT EDITor.

ChangeCase Method takes an argument that specifies whether characters are to be converted to upper case or lower case.
