How to prompt the user to save the file in a particular file name

Avatar

Level 9

Hello All,

I have a form which has several fields. Out of those one field is called CustomerName. Is it possible to save the file in a paricular file name. Like :

"Customer Name  'Today's Date'". When the user tries to save it or save as it it will be in the same format that I have told.

Thanks.

Hello All,

Just addition to that, while submitting the file as PDF is it possible to change the file name dynamically by taking some value from the form itself ?

Thanks.

In general:

You only can change the file name through the SaveAs function in a trusted enviroment (folder level script).

When you want to submit the form with a different name, you have to save it first.

Hello Radzmar,

Could you please where to put this folder level script and in which event ? I do not need a SaveAs button. I want this script should fire when I submit the PDF.As I have said the file should be saved by taking data from the CustomerName and appending it to the current date and time. Could you please give a sample form on this ?

Thanks.

Hi,

to get in touch with folder level scripts, please read this tutorials first.

As metioned before, you have to save the form with a new file name before you submit it.

Otherwise the file name cannot be changed.
