Capitalize strings

This code sample will allow you to capitalize a string. CSS only allows you to have all lower-case, all upper-case or all words capitalized (not just the first).

String.prototype.capitalize = function () {
    return this.replace(/\S+/g, function (a) {
        return a.charAt(0).toUpperCase() + a.slice(1).toLowerCase();
    });
};

Directions:
– Call txt.capitalize() to have the capitalized version.

Note:
This snippet focuses on iOS development. Make sure to verify/adapt any vendor prefixes.
