locking a form upon submission


Level 1

HI All.  I have a product sample submission form for my laboratory.  The form has multiple fields that are filled out by the requestor and a Submit button that will mail a copy to a domain.  When I send the form now, it does not lock the fields and can still be edited.  I would like for it to lock the field and send what I call a "normal" .pdf, (like when you convert a .docx to a .pdf).  Is that possible in LiveCycle?  I would like for the form to not be editable once it is sent, as well as to be smaller in size. (3MB after submission currently).

You have two options:

1)  Use LiveCycle Output to merge the data onto the template, the result will be a read only version of the document.

2)  You could use a script to set the readonly attribute (TextField1.access = "readOnly";)

Unless this is a very large form 3 meg seems large.  If you have a logo/graphic on the template check the image type as that could be adding to the size significantly.
