Define onchange method for this field. Inside method convert value of field as you like.

May be useful for v9 and v8 users,

name = fields.Char()

@api.onchange('name')

def caps_name(self):

    if self.name :

        self.name = str(self.name).title()

Thanks for the response, and here's I have done already.

hr_view.xml

        <!--Employee form view -->

                       <div class="oe_title">
                            <label for="name" class="oe_edit_only"/>
                            <h1>
                            <field name="name"  on_change="onchange_name(name)"/>
                            </h1>

On hr.py I have added the below code

def onchange_name(self, cr, uid, ids, name, context=None):
    return {
        'value': {
            'name': name.title()
            }
    }

 

Got the following errors:

In python use the code name.title() to Capitalize the first letter in Create method or onchange Method.

EDIT

I tested your code its working without any issue.

Try the below code:-

   <div class="oe_title">
      <label for="name" class="oe_edit_only"/>
        <h1>
           <field name="name"  on_change="onchange_name(name)"/>
        </h1>

def onchange_name(self, cr, uid, ids, name, context=None):
    if name:
        return {'value': {'name': name.title()}}
    return {'value':{}}
    
After making these changes, restart the server update your module and test it. It should work.
