I created a sample that deals with lots of different email issues. You can tackle this in many different ways. Have a look at the sample and see if it meets your purposes.
Thanks for the fast response Paul.
Ok I've successfully managed to edit the subject line as follows
Submit Button>Submit Tab>Submit to URL: mailto:[emailaddress]?subject=
However, from here ... how do I make the subject = [text]+TextField1 < example > subject would read - Request for [Jimmy Smith] >[textfield1]
Sorry if I'm making this seem more difficult than it is.
Many thanks for any help given.
Again, as a novice, I apologize if this is trivial knowledge, but JS is new territory for me.
I really do appreciate you taking the time to explain this to me.
You might be better off using the Acroform method in that document ....the script is behind click event of the button. In Designer, highlight the button. Then under window ensure that the script editor is opened. It should be on top of the form display but below the menu bars. On the left side is a dropdown (called Show) that allows you to pick the event. Anything that has script behind will show with an *. Choose the click event. The code shodul be there.
Ok, now we're making some progress, but now I have a syntax error. (see attached screenshot)
I'm so close I must be missing something right under my nose. Any suggestions?
Your time and patience is appreciated.
I need to email submit and have one of the field inputs like an address appear in the subject line and also in the attached file name. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks for any suggestions.
You wopn't be able to change the filename unless you save the file first. Here is an example of a number of ways to deal with parts of the email programatically.
Thanks Paul. I think I have a button that will work from your great attachment. On the saving issue. Do you have any thoughts on any code that might auto save 'behind the sences so to speak' to a users temp file and then pick up the email submit without the user having to save it and then go get it to email?
Thanks again for your expertise!
If you are using an email client then the autosave is happening automatically for you. If you are using a web client for email then you can have a button that will save the form but you cannot automatically do this. You can bring up the dialog for the use but you cannot choose a filename and save without th eusers knowledge - that woudl be a breach of security!
I found this thread very informative, however, the examples given don't seem to detail the same issue I'm having. Similar to the first example, I have a PDF from with a button at the bottom that says "Click here to Submit Form" and on the back side it is a simple Mailto:email@example.com The document Paul provided helped me see where I can specify the subject using Java but what syntax do I input to call the contents of a field from the form as the first portion of the subject?
If there if a Field on my Form called "ApplicantLastName" I'd like for the Contents of that filed to be part of the Subject of the email sent so the Subject would ultimately be "Doe-NEW-Access-Request" where the word "Doe" is the content of the "ApplicantLastname" field.
This may have been covered in this thread and I'm just blind and not grasping it, if so please feel free to beat me with a wet noodle and point it out....Any help would be appreciated.
In that example file the 3rd one puts a users name (from a Dropdownlist) into the command. You can use the same technique to manipulate the subject. It woudl be something like this:
"mailto:" + DropDownList1.rawValue + "?subject=" + ApplicantLastName.rawValue + "-NEW-Access-Request";
With some other help in the forums the following code behind the button seems to do what I need it to. The only issue I'm having now is getting this email button to actually attach the PDF form to the email. I'm also trying to get it to pull data from two fields (Applicant Last Name and Applicant First Name) but the syntax eludes me....
/*var myFieldData = this.getField ("APPLICANT LAST NAME");
var mySubjectName = (myFieldData.valueAsString);
app.mailMsg(false, TEST@TESTEMAIL.COM, "", "", "Access Request for"+mySubjectName, "Please process the attached form for acess.");
I am having trouble opening up your example using the Acroform method from your attachment. Do you know any reason why this would be? I am looking at attaching a recruitment number to the subject line when an applicant submits an application.
Thanks for any help.
