    ucwords

    Using this function, How can I get it so that it will uppercase the first letter after a parentheses, (a cat) would become (A Cat), and not (a Cat).

    That only upper cases the first letter of the string, not every letter of each word.

    PHP Code:
    function ucFirstWithParenthesis($string){
    $temp str_replace("(","( ",$string);
    $temp ucwords($temp);
    return 
    $temp;

    Not tested.

    It half way worked, so I modifyed it to look like this:


    PHP Code:
    function edit_name($edit){
        
    $nedit str_replace("(","( ",$edit); 
        
    $temp ucwords($nedit); 
        
    $nedit str_replace("( ","(",$temp); 
        return 
    $nedit;

    That works.^

    /: delimiter
    \b: word boundary
    [a-z]: one character, lower case, a thru z
    /: delimiter
    e: "e" modifier, used with preg_replace, orders the second argument to be evaluated.

    So... If I would like to uppercase the letter after a period would I use this:
    preg_replace('/\b./e', "strtoupper('$0')", $target);

    And if I would like to uppercase the letter after a hyphen would I use this:
    preg_replace('/\b-/e', "strtoupper('$0')", $target);

    No! For a start an unescaped dot in PCRE is a wildcard. Also even if it were an escaped dot all you would be capturing would be a dot.

    All you are capturing here is a hyphen.

    For me to give useful help about this you will need to post a before and after example!

    That is because every character in that string is at a word boundry and is matched by a wildcard. Doesn't make it right though.

    PHP Code:
    $nedit preg_replace('/\b[a-z]/e'"strtoupper('$0')"$nedit); 
    I believe that this is making anything after an ' become uppercase.
    Example:
    So the word don't becomes Don'T and I want it to become Don't.

    Is there a way to remove that from happening with this line? Otherwise I will add a str_replace.
