You can do it using this code as the field's custom Keystroke script:

 

event.rc = /^[-a-z]*$/i.test(event.change);
event.value = event.value.toUpperCase();

Thank you! I had omitted that the field should be able to accept spaces as well, but then adding a space to the character class, as follows, sorted that out.

event.rc = /^[-a-z ]*$/i.test(event.change);
event.value = event.value.toUpperCase();

If you want to show uppercase as soon as you type it, replace:

event.value = event.value.toUpperCase();

with:

event.change = event.change.toUpperCase();

Only letters can be in upper case.
