Submit via email: Error


Level 3

Hi- Been trying to make a functioning "Submit via email" button. I used the Form rather than the Submit buttin in Livecycle, chose PDF in the Object menu, and put my list of email addresses in there. This is for inter-office use only, we all use Outlook. I have saved my Livecycle form as Reader-Enabled. Our employees will be filling the form in Adobe Reader, then I would like them to be able to just click a button on the form to email the filled PDF to everyone else in the company (all the addresses in the Object palette field).

I think it worked once when I tested it in Livecycle Preview. Now, testing it in both Acrobat and Reader, absolutely nothing happens.

How on earth can I get this to work?

many thanks!

you're using a HTTP Send button instead of a E-Mail Send Button in your form, that why it doesn't work.

Hi  Radzmar,

Thank you for responding! When I look at the button on the Object palette, it says that it's a regular button: not an email button, not an http button: how can you tell it's an http button?

I had read in the forums that you have to use the regular button in the Object Library to create an email submit button because the email button in the Object Library does not allow you to  specify to email as a PDF rather than just the data. At this point I'm a little confused...

Many thanks!
