The bottom line is ....you cannot. If that was possible I could build a denial of service attack into every form that you create. By forcing the user to hit the send button you also stop true applications like the one you are trying to build.
Thanks for the reply. So, is there a way to deal with customers who don't have an email client installed on their system? (I have to assume that my customers do not have Acrobat Pro.)
Also, it's not redundant, it's a huge security loophole if the user
doesn't see that they are sending an email. It would allow e-mail
addresses to be silently harvested.
You are absolutely right about the limitations of e-mail clients and
the millions who don't use them. For this reason, I see "email submit"
as a test tool, for use in the development phase. For any serious use
a form will submit to a web server, just like a web page does.
The implementation within Reader gives your users several options for email:
1. Use mail client such as Outlook.
2. Use online mail client such as Yahoo or GMail.
3. Save the data file, and send it later how ever you want to.
