    Emailing a completed pdf form from the web

    mtnerd Level 1

      I would like to create a pdf employment application form which will be linked to a website.  When the visitor clicks an "Apply On-Line" button, the form will open in a new window (I know how to do this).  After the visitor completes the form, the submit button will run code to create a pdf copy of the form, email it to a designated email address, and return the visitor to the website.

       

      I've been testing a trial version of Acrobat Pro DC.  The "Submit A Form" function doesn't email the form. When the Submit button is clicked with this Action attached, nothing happens. I called Adobe support and they said no, that function wouldn't send the form from the web and I needed to hire a developer to write the code to do this. So I did some more research and found the code on my own (email address falsified for security). 

      this.maildoc({

      bUI: false,

      cTo: "me@gmail.com",

      cCC: "anotherme@gmail.com",

      cSubject: "Employee Application",

      cMsg: "From the on-line job application form"

      });

      I  loaded this into the "Run a Javascript" for the "Mouse Up" trigger on a Submit button.  Nothing happens when the button is clicked. 

       

      I've called to request support and so far have received nothing besides "we can't help you".  I'm waiting for a supervisor to call me.   

       

      Am I doing something wrong with the function?  Is there something else I should put into the Javascript box?

      Any advice will be welcome,
