Topic: Form mailDoc() Text Field Name to Email Subject Header
Conf: (P-PDF) Beginners, Msg: 171100
From: nefrsm32

I would like to use Acrobat Reader to submit a form created in Acrobat Pro and have the subject header populate with a selected field name. I have used a previous topic “Form mailto: using Javascript” as an example, but am having difficulty getting it to work.

I want to use the ‘mailDoc()’ method and need to add the following (based on the previous topic example), but am unclear where to add this in Adobe LiveCycle Designer prior to extending features in Adobe Reader.

var doc = event.target; // establish 'doc' object for use in JavaScript with LiveCycle Designer

var subject = doc.getField("txtItemNumber") //txtItemNumber = textBox name
doc.submitForm ({cURL:"mailto:myname@mywork.com" + "?subject=" + subject, cSubmitAs:"PDF", cCharset:"utf-8"});

Appreciate your help.
