I have been using livecycle designer for some time but am quite new to xml.
I have added a regular button with the submit function to allow my form to be emailed and this works well.
However we would like to have the email pre-populate the subject line and body with a set of instructions for our users.
After lots of google and forum searches I have the line of xml code
submit format="pdf" textEncoding="UTF-16" xdpContent="pdf datasets xfdf" target="mailto:email@example.com" subject="Completed Travel Form for Approval - Traveller - Date"& body="(email body) "/>
but I am getting the following error - XML parsing error:not well-formed (invalid token) (error code 4), line 10220, column 202 of file
which relates to the " after the word Date
Does anyone know how I can fix this?? and if this will do what I am trying to achieve?
the submit element does not support the subject attribute, there is only a target attribute that contains a string build after the mailto scheme.
Change you xml source into this.
<submit format="pdf" textEncoding="UTF-16" xdpContent="pdf datasets" target="mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org?subject=Completed Travel Form for Approval - Traveller - Date&body=email body"/>
I please ignore my reply above.. I have tried your suggestion again and it has worked, which is awesome.. thank you.. only now I find I am unable to have the email populated with line breaks, but rather all in one long stream of text. I have tried a couple of options for adding this break with no success
Thanks for the reply, unfortunately the below has stopped the functionality of adding to the email, meaning my submit button no longer works at all.
