Now, I used the 'bUI: false' statement as the email process may potentially fire off emails to several different teams, and I didn't want the end user that is filling the form to have to click on the Outlook 'Send' button several times. I've tested the form in Adobe Acrobat X and this send's off the silent emails with the form successfully.
However when I tested with Adobe Reader 9.4 (Which all of our end user's have & Win 7), the 'bUI: false' statement is ignored and multiple Outlook message windows appear with the form attached.
This is definately no good and I've spent a long time creating this complex form only to get stuck on the final hurdle.
Does ANYONE have a solution to this that can be codes within the button rather than using a local .js file.
You're out of luck... As the reference for this method states (see the Note):
bUI (optional) If true (the default), the rest of the parameters are used in a
compose-new-message window that is displayed to the user. If false, the cTo
parameter is required and all others are optional.
Note: (Acrobat 7.0) When this method is executed in a non-privileged context, the
bUI parameter is not honored and defaults to true. See Privileged versus
It would be a huge security risk if a PDF could just send emails without any user consent or action...
Using a local JS file (or certifiying the PDF) are your only options to silently send an email.
