Subject:Submitting PDF form From:"Ashaki Hamlett" <ashaki -dot- hamlett -at- la-z-boy -dot- com> To:"TECHWR-L" <techwr-l -at- lists -dot- raycomm -dot- com> Date:Wed, 19 May 2004 11:59:47 -0400
I've created a PDF form in Acrobat 5 that contains a Submit button. When
the button is invoked, I want the form to attach to the user's default
e-mail program and populate the To and Subject fields. I tested this
form with other writers in my group and it works. We all have the full
version of Adobe Acrobat. However, when I tested this with other
colleagues who only have Reader, the form will not attach. I've searched
everywhere on the Internet for a solution. I've even posted this
question to Planet PDF's discussion forum, but I haven't received any
responses. Do I need to write a Java Script to get this to work for
users who only have Acrobat Reader? All suggestions are welcomed.
Thanks in advance,
