You could use the following. You could use field entries, then you have to change the path and the objectname to yours.

var Mailto = Formular1.s1.email.rawValue;

You could use static text

var Mailto = "test@test.de";

It's your choice.

//fill in e-mail

var Mailto = Formular1.s1.email.rawValue;

//var Mailto = "test@test.de";

//fill in subject

var Betreff = Formular1.s1.betreff.rawValue;

//var Betreff = "Test-Betreff";

//fill in message

var Nachricht = "Content PDF:\r" + "Field content: " + Formular1.s1.inhalt.rawValue + "\rName: "

+ Formular1.s1.name.rawValue + "\rDatum: " + Formular1.s1.datum.formattedValue;

//var Nachricht = "This is a test message.\r2.row start here.\r3.row here.";

//fill in e-mail cc

var CC = Formular1.s1.emailcc.rawValue;

//var CC = "testcc@test.de";

//fill in e-mail bcc

var BCC = Formular1.s1.emailbcc.rawValue;

//var BCC = "testbcc@test.de";

var Mail = "mailto:" + Mailto + "?Subject=" + Betreff + "&Body=" + Nachricht + "&cc=" + CC + "&bcc=" + BCC;

//cSubmitAs: "PDF" send the pdf as attachment

//cSubmitAs: "XML" send the pdf as xml-attachment


cURL: Mail,

bEmpty: true,

cSubmitAs: "XML"


I hope that will helps?

You could also use the following:

  1. Take a submit-button.
  2. Fill in the emailadress.
  3. Fill in the subject.
  4. Select "submit as" XML or PDF.


I hope one of the both will helpful?

Kind regards Mandy

Thank you for this.

What does Nachricht and betreff mean?Also,how do I add a field from the form to the subject line?



Level 5

Sorry. I come from Germany. This is the german word for message.

Nachricht = Message

Betreff = Subject

I forgot to change this.

But this is only a variable..

You can work with them?


Former Community Member

Hi and thank you.

Is there a way to display a message right after the submit button is clicked and before the email client opens?



Level 5

For which reason?

You want check if the message is correct?


Former Community Member

A simple message like thank you for submitting the form.


Level 5

You can solve this about the

xfa.host.messabeBox(Nachricht, "Information for user.", 1, 0);

Hi, this is great info for me as I've been trying to manage a BUTTON to send out an email strictly as a PDF file.  The attached form needs to be in the name the form was initially saved.  I'm using your example below but it is sending the PDF form as an XML file.  My problem is I'm not sure what type of "Control Type" button under the "Field" object I should use and I want to make sure that form sent is 1) In the name of the form being sent, and 2) is being sent as a PDF file.  Thanks for your help...

  1. //cSubmitAs: "PDF" send the pdf as attachment 
  2. //cSubmitAs: "XML" send the pdf as xml-attachment 
  3. event.target.submitForm({ 
  4. cURL: Mail, 
  5. bEmpty: true, 
  6. cSubmitAs: "XML" 
  7. });
