Adding field data to subject line and body of email

Avatar

Not applicable

HI

I have created a form that can be submitted by e-mail. I would like the data entered into the form to populate the subject line and body of the email but have no idea of how to script this. I would be grateful if someone could have a look at the form and see how I can achieve this.

For example

subject line: Travel and accommodation form [Name] [EventName] [StartDate]

Body:

Please open the attached travel and accommodation for for [Name] who will be attending [EventName] on the [Start Date]

Here is the code for my button:

<field name="Submit" y="219.075mm" x="139.7mm" w="34.925mm" h="6mm">
            <ui>
               <button/>
            </ui>
            <font typeface="Myriad Pro"/>
            <caption>
               <value>
                  <text>Submit</text>
               </value>
               <para vAlign="middle" hAlign="center"/>
               <font typeface="Myriad Pro"/>
            </caption>
            <border hand="right">
               <?templateDesigner StyleID apbx2?>
               <edge stroke="raised"/>
               <fill>
                  <color value="212,208,200"/>
               </fill>
            </border>
            <bind match="none"/>
            <event activity="click">
               <submit format="pdf" textEncoding="UTF-16" target=mailto:myaddress@test.com xdpContent="pdf datasets xfdf"/>
            </event>
         </field>


Please excuse my ignorance as not competent with XML so any help would be gratefully received. Have already tried some methods posted on here already but not helped.

Use the old way, this is, create a regular button and on the click event use something like this:

var oDoc = event.target;

oDoc.mailDoc({
bUI: true,
cTo: "aa@bb.cc",
cCC: "11@22.33",
cSubject: "TEXT " + field.rawValue + " more text",
cMsg: "PDF IN ATTACH."
});

Hi,

Thanks for your help. I understand the code but do not understand how it fits in with the code - as the code for regular button is as follows:

</field>
         <field name="Button1" y="219.075mm" x="142.875mm" w="28.575mm" h="6mm">
            <ui>
               <button/>
            </ui>
            <font typeface="Myriad Pro"/>
            <caption>
               <value>
                  <text>Button</text>
               </value>
               <para vAlign="middle" hAlign="center"/>
               <font typeface="Myriad Pro"/>
            </caption>
            <border hand="right">
               <?templateDesigner StyleID apbx2?>
               <edge stroke="raised"/>
               <fill>
                  <color value="212,208,200"/>
               </fill>
            </border>
            <bind match="none"/>
         </field>


Or if I chose a regular button and then choose "submit" as it's function I have

</field>
         <field name="Button1" y="219.075mm" x="139.7mm" w="34.925mm" h="6mm">
            <ui>
               <button/>
            </ui>
            <font typeface="Myriad Pro"/>
            <caption>
               <value>
                  <text>Button</text>
               </value>
               <para vAlign="middle" hAlign="center"/>
               <font typeface="Myriad Pro"/>
            </caption>
            <border hand="right">
               <?templateDesigner StyleID apbx2?>
               <edge stroke="raised"/>
               <fill>
                  <color value="212,208,200"/>
               </fill>
            </border>
            <bind match="none"/>
            <event activity="click">
               <submit format="pdf" textEncoding="UTF-16" xdpContent="pdf datasets xfdf"/>
            </event>
         </field>


Thanks again

Put it in the Click event of a Button with the control type set to regular.
