Save As?

Is there a way to make a "Save As" Button in LiveCycle Designer 8?   I need my customer to be able to fill out the form, print, email and save.

Place a regular button on the form and write the following code in the click event of the button using Java Script as language.

     app.execMenuItem("SaveAs");

Thanks

Check the below image.. It gives you an idea how to get the Script editor and where to choose the Click event from.

Hi Julie:

Did you so as Srini suggested??


Basically you make a basic button in designer, then in under the sctipt editor tab make sure the language is "javascript", and you select "click"  from the show dropdown, then copy and paste

app.execMenuItem("SaveAs")

Then once you have done that, save..

Then open in Acrobat pro and entend the reader rights

To do this:

Open Acrobat Pro > Open File > File Save As > Reader Extended PDF  > Enable Additional Features > Save

THANKS – That worked.  Now my next problem.  I’m using the Email Button and it will only send in an .XML format and I need them to be a .PDF file.  Any advice?

Use a "Button" rather than an "Email button".  Choose Submit under control type (on the Field page of the Object palette).  A submit page with appear (on the Object palette).  Choose PDF under Submit As.  Then enter the email address in the Submit to URL (mailto:person@company.com)

Hope this helps
