Submit Button attaching PDF not working

Avatar

27-07-2008

Hi



I am trying to get LiveCycle designer to create my PDF form with a submit to email button, but i want it to submit the whole PDF file not XML data to email.



I have discovered that i need to use the 'button' item rather than the 'submit button' item as it wont let me export the filled in form as the whole PDF file rather only XML data.



I have typed in the URL section mailto:amy@marionsphotographics.com.au but i am unsure if i have this scripting right.



The furthest i get is the email poping up to send, but when you hit the send button, it doesnt do anything. Its like the email address is stopping it or something.



Can you please let me know what i am doing wrong!

Hello Amy,

You cannot submit by email from a PDF using Reader without applying a usage rights or using a full Acrobat. To apply usage rights you should use LC Reader Extensions server.

You can test your email clients ability to handle the mailto protocol by opening a browser and typing in the



mailto:amy@marionsphotographics.com.au



as the URL. This should bring up your mail client and allow you to send the email.

Hi Amy,

You can find more info on this topic here: http://livecycleapps.wordpress.com/2008/07/28/a-submit-button-that-will-send-an-entire-pdf/



Depending on your use, you may be able to apply usage rights using Acrobat instead of LiveCyle Reader Extensions.
