You don't need to know JS to submit a form.
Just create a button and select "Submit a form" as the action, and then set the settings you want.
I've tried that, but the only options I see are to submit it as FDF, HTML, XFDF, or Complete PDF. None of these send the form data as text like a mailto web form does, and last I checked choosing Complete PDF doesn't work correctly for just Reader users. Am I missing something?
No, there's no option there to send just plain text. That indeed can only be
achieved with a script, which will not work with Reader.
As far as I know, submitting the complete PDF should work with Reader. The
JS-equivalent of this function can submit the full PDF and can be used from
I said it would (or should) work.
Can you point me in the direction of where I could get a JS-equivalent script of the Complete PDF function? I appreciate any help.
