TYPO3 v8 has reached its end-of-life March 31st, 2020 and is not maintained by the community anymore. Looking for a stable version? Use the version switch on the top left.

There is no further ELTS support. It is recommended that you upgrade your project and use a supported version of TYPO3.

Modify the order

There is a way around this ordering restriction. stdWrap has a property called orderedStdWrap in which several stdWrap properties can be called in numerical order. Thus:

10 = TEXT
10 {
   value = typo3
   orderedStdWrap {
      10.noTrimWrap = |<strong>Tool: |</strong>| = upper

results in:

<strong>TOOL: TYPO3</strong>

because we explicitly specified that noTrimWrap should happen before case.

It should be noted that stdWrap itself has a stdWrap property, meaning that it can be called recursively. In most case orderedStdWrap will do the job and is much easier to understand making code easier to maintain.
