Converts a string to lowercase.

 string lower( string input )

Lowercases a string.

Example

 {lower('Example Industry')} = example industry

Force Lowercase a User Name

Use Case: You pass a variable called “userName”, in which users can capitalize the letters however the like. For consistency, you want everyone’s userName to appear all lowercased in a template.

Zephyr:

zephyr example user_name cooluser

<p>Hello, {lower(userName)}</p>

Output: Hello, cooluser.

Explanation: This script uses the lower() fuction to force lowercase every element of a string, in this instance, the each letter of the “user_name” custom field on a user profile.

Display a User’s Name in a Template in Title Case

Use Case: You pass a variable called “first_name”, in which users can capitalize the letters however the like. For consistency, you want the first letter of everyone’s name to be capitalized with the remaining letters to be lowercase.

Zephyr:

On the profile:

<p>Hello, {title(lower(first_name))}</p>

Output: Hello, Steve.

Explanation: This script uses the lower() fuction to force lowercase every element of a string, in this instance, the each letter of the “first_name” custom field on a user profile. Additionally, since the order of operations is inside to outside, after the each letter has been lowercased, the title() function capitalizes the first letter of the value.
