Hi,

I got a problem:

I'm trying to ad a email button in a form using live cycle 4 on windows.

It al works fine submitting XML, but just won't work for PDF.

I have used all variations (common button, email button, adding java script behind the button) It works with XML, just not with PDF...

Can annyone help?

Use acrobat:

To attach a filled copy of your form to an email you have to add usage Rights to the form first.

You can add those rights with Acrobat XI under File > Save As Other > Reader Extended PDF > Enable More Tools.

or

You can add those rights with Acrobat X (mac) under File > Save As Other > Reader Extended PDF > Enable Adittional features

Hi Hunter...I'm new to JavaScript and LiveCycle Designer ES4 myself but I've managed to figure out how to send an email of my form via a button.  Although, now I'm trying to figure out how to change the attached form name it defaults to, the email still works with a field inserted into the subject and body.

The button I created is simply a submit button but with the "Control Type" as regular.  I've also added JavaScript to the button.  This works with MS Outlook 2010.  Hope this helps...

 

var SbjtStr = "Property file for " + Page1.BC.rawValue;   (Page1.BC.rawValue is a field in my PDF form)

 

var bdymsg = "The attached property form (" + Page1.BC.rawValue + ")  is sent for your disposition.";

 

event.target.mailDoc(false, "Fb@whateverdomain", "", "", SbjtStr, bdymsg);

Your answer is correct, unless you have the LiveCycle Server Reader Extensions module, then it can be automated.
