Any info on this would be greatly appreciated. Sorry for asking so many questions! I'm new to this...so i'm ignorant
I've created a pdf form and made the fields, now i just have to make the submit button for the form and i am choosing the html format to send the data... if understand correctly these are my steps:
-Create a submit button with the form tool. In the Field Properties dialog box, click the Actions tab.
-From the list, select the "Mouse Down" trigger and click the Add button.
-From the Action type select list, choose the "Submit Form" action and click the "Select URL" button.
-In the SubmitForm Selections dialog box, enter the URL of the application that will process the submitted form data ("http://www.company.com/page.asp")
-Set the Export Format to HTML Form.
-In the Add Action dialog box, click Set Action.
-In the Field Properties dialog box, click Ok.
so then what??? does a url encoded string go to the page.asp? if so does it include the field names and corresponding values..??...so i can urlDecode the string on the page.asp and use the values for what ever?? If this is so... am i limited to certain amount of characters in the urlencoded string, will it work with all browser platforms (IE and netscape and...?) If these limitation exist, does the fdf format also have limitations?
