I need to add a print button that when the person clicks it to print, it will also send an email to a certain address.



Thanks in advance!!

In livecycle designer, use the welcome screen and it gives you two checkboxes giving you the option to put one on for you.

I know that it gives me options to add 2 separate buttons but the user doesnt need to know they are emailing anything. I just need it set up so when the person hits print, it will send an email to whatever address I set up.



If its even possible

Sorry, can't be done as you describe, if I understand you right...



> the user doesnt need to know they are emailing anything.



Yes, they do. Sending an email secretly is considered an ENORMOUS

security hole, and if there were a way to do it, this would cause a

scandal, rapidly followed by an emergency fix.

Well you can do this in other forms. For example a coldfusion form online, I know these are two different concepts completely, but it is possible to send an email by just a click of a button.



So there is no way, outside of the the person sending an email themselves, to notify someone that the form was printed?

No, I don't think so.

Not exactly. This is the user contacting a web server. Then the web

server sends an e-mail. This is perfectly fine, and not a security

concern.



This is perfectly possible and practical with a PDF form too. You just

need a suitable script on the server.

They can be sent an email but they must see and accept it.
