You can use an Email button to submit an XFDL form as an attachment to an e-mail message.
There are two ways a user can submit a form via e-mail:
- Using the Mail Form button in the Viewer toolbar — If the user clicks the Mail Form button in the Viewer toolbar, a blank address form is displayed. The user can fill out the address form (for example, recipient, subject, cc, bcc, and message) and send the e-mail. The transmitted form is sent as an attachment to this e-mail. Before sending the e-mail, the user can add further attachments, remove any attachments, or save any attachments to disk.
- Using an Email button on the form — You can create a button on your form that acts similar to the Mail Form button in the Viewer toolbar. You can configure the button so that it automatically fills out some or all of the address form. For example, you could configure the button so that it opens the address form and automatically addresses it to the correct person.
