I am creating a form and I have about twenty items in a drop down list. I was wondering if and how I can set it so each item selected will cause an email button I have to change address. i.e item 1 sets the email button to email@example.com and item 2 sets the button to firstname.lastname@example.org. I think it has something to do with binding but I only have basic training so I am lost. Any help that you can give will be greatly appreciated . Thank you in advance
Very easily done in InDesign. See:
window >> interactive >> hyperlinks
window interactive >> buttons
Your final product needs to be a .pdf, and don't forget to check Inlcude hyperlinks when exporting to .pdf.
I made you a quick sample which just opens up an email client, populates email address based on choise that user has made in combobox and some custom subject and body meassage text. You can find it from my dropbox: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/17227987/sampleform.pdf
