Adobe Form send by e-mail as PDF + opening Outlook

Not applicable


I've created a form with a "send by e-mail' button.

When clicking this button, the users Outlook should open with a new e-mail and the pdf attached (subject and To pre-filled)

I have tested this in example mode in Livecycle designer. Everthing works fine then.

But when I publish the form it sends the form directly to the given e-mail adres, without opening the outlook e-mail first.

It is important to open the outlook e-mail first, because I want them to add attachements and some comments in the mail before sending the form.

Any of you familiar with this problem, and how to solve it?

Did you use this script in your button?

This has always worked for me.

Yes I tried that.

I first used the e-mail submit button from the object library, this didn't worked, so I created the button myself with the standard button.
