When I open this form in Acrobat X Pro and hit the submit button, a mail dialog box comes up as I would expect.
When I open this form in Acrobat Reader X and hit the submit button, I get the error:
Not allowed error. Security settings prevent access to this property or method.
Why the difference? Note that I will have this form on my website, so I cannot expect my visitors to change their Reader setting. How can I fix it?
I have been pouring over the documentation for mailForm. Everything I read tells me that this.mailForm(true); is legal and does not require special privileges.
If the form works in Acrobat, it should work in Reader where I really need it. Can anyone help?
Thanks for replying. The page you mentioned says:
I did check that item (as I mentioned above). So why can't I execute it? At any rate, the mailForm documentation says that if the first parameter is TRUE, it operates in a non-privileged state. I have been using TRUE for this question.
So someone please tell me, why won't this.mailForm(true); work in Adobe X Reader while it works if I open it in Acrobat itself?
The error message is simply misleading, and I don't know why it has been made so. It has nothing to do with security settings; it is simply that the form does not have the according rights.
The "security" error message does, of course make one believe that it is a question of privilege… whidh is misleading.
Thanks for your response. In order to give my form what I believe to be the "according rights," I opened my form in Acrobat X Pro.
I then did Save As - Reader Extended PDF - Enable Additional Features.
After saving the form, the fields could be edited in Reader. However it behaved the same way with this.mailForm(true) attached to the submit button.
I got the error: "Not allowed error. Security settings prevent access to this property or method." Why?
