    Attach pdf to email and use text from field in body

    danialhanson

      I'm looking to create a fillable form with a 'submit' button at the bottom.  Upon clicking the submit button, I would like an e-mail window to open with a pre-defined recipient, and the pdf attached.  I've found code to accomplish this using this.mailDoc()

       

      However:

       

      I'm also hoping to get the text from the "Name" field of my form and use it in the body of the e-mail.

      I've found the following code in another post, which appears to work for this:

       

      var cClientName = this.getField("ClientName").value;

      var cAddress = this.getField("Address").value;


      var cBody = "Client Information:\n\n";

      cBody += "Client Name: " + cClientName + "\n";

      cBody += "Address: " + cAddress + "\n";


      var myURL = "mailto:email@company.com?subject=Client Info&body=";

      myURL += cBody;


      app.launchURL(myURL, true);


      That will open an e-mail window with a body containing the data from AcroForm fields named "ClientName" and "Address".

       

      The problem is, that this code will not attach the pdf.

       

      How can I get the best of both worlds?

       

      Thanks!
