Avatar

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

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

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);
