Hey there, I have been reading the forum a bit, and am new to designer. I have a few questions.
I would like to create a pdf form, and then the user simply clicks the submit button and it sends the data via email to an individual email address. What I don't want is the user to have to have an email program installed, or even log into their email accounts, as if they are on a public computer, then they won't be able to send the data.
Pretty much everyone on the forum says this isn't possible or shouldn't be done. But form submission is used all the time on web pages, and it seems to work. Would it be better to simply use an html form? I was hoping to control display and add interactivity a bit easier with a pdf.
Anyways, if someone can explain why this can't be done, or how it could be, that would be great. I am just a bit confused, and there is very little reading about it. I would assume calling a simple php program like natemail would work.
