Button to send filled out form as completed pdf form via email


Level 2

I have created a form that when filled out, should send the form by email to the recipient as a completed pdf form. It works with Adobe Acrobat but not Reader.

Any Ideas?

form can be found at:  http://www.lcyc.ca/images/stories/macman2012/macmanentry.pdf

You might just need to "Reader Extend" your form.  Open your form in Adobe Acrobat and then depending on your version of Acrobat "Enable Usage rights in Reader" and save the form.  This should then allow your user to fill in teh form and save it in Reader.

Hope this helps

Everything seems to work except that when I click on submit by email, I choose desktop email application and nothing happens. it won't open outlook and start the email.

When I click the other option it prompts to save the file.

Use your real name, and e-mail address in the PDF form fields, and recieve a customized email copy and response.

The script will parse and merge the XDP submission, so there's no need to Reader Enable your forms.

PDFEmail.net works in ASP.net web servers.

Note: Do not submit sensitive information, this is just a demo. I may get a BCC of the form.
