    JavaScript in Form Acts Differently in Acrobat X and Reader X

    roc524

      I have a fillable PDF form whose Submit button calls this JavaScript:

      this.mailForm(true);

       

      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?
