How to get submit button to work after posting form to website?

I have created a pdf fillable form with a submit button so that the form can sent to me via email.  The submit button does not work once the form has been posted to our website.  How do I get it to work?

Hi,
The form was created in Adobe Acrobat Pro XI.  It was saved Protected to Restrict Editing.  The submit button was formatted with URL mailto:[email protected] and Export format PDF the complete document.  Once posted onto our website when you click on the submit button nothing happens.

  • Getting submit button to work online in Adobe Reader

    We've been having problems getting the Submit button to function in an Adobe form we use online. I searched this forum and others but came up with no solution other than instructing the user to download the form and open it locally in Reader then fill it out and submit. This seemed counter intuitive so we called Adobe and got the following bit of info that worked like a charm so we thought we'd share it with others who may be experiencing the same problem.
    In Adobe Acrobat Professional
    Go to “Advanced” in the menu
    Select “Enable Usage Rights in Adobe Reader...”
    When you do this it prompts you to save it. Once this is enabled you can't edit the document any further so you may want to save it as a new name and upload it to the web and the submit button should then work in the browser.   

    I can't read the form on this machine (meaning it is not backward compatible to this version). However, the typical problem is that you are trying to have a full form submitted. Simply change to the FDF or XML data which can be imported to the form. There are restrictions on the saving that is needed for the full form and also there may be problems with using e-mail -- e-mail depends on the client machine setup in many cases and will fail.
    Follow up:
    I looked at the submit button. There are two aspects that are issues, one that is probably the problem you are having.
    1. You use e-mail submission. This may cause problems for some folks due to their system not being setup for MAPI or related automated mailto: operation. That is likely not your problem, but can be an issue.
    2. You have selected to submit the entire PDF. Change that to a FDF submission for now and it will probably work fine. Depending on your version of Acrobat you can fine a menu item listed as Form Data with the option to import data. That is all you need to get the data back in the same form as in the PDF that was completed. You will have to open the form and then import the data, unless the form has not moved and the FDF file still has the file path information to open the data in the file automatically.
    3. To enable the full form, you run into issues with the license agreement if it is be used by more than 500 folks. It may be an issue for a company as large as your's. In that case, use the form data. If you can insure that there will be no more than 500 folks using the form (see Sec 15 of the EULA), you can enable Reader Rights (need AA8 or AA9). I would suggest you are better off not enabling the form in your work place, but having the data submitted. The user can print the form (and markup) for their records.

  • Cannot get Submit button to work

    I am really stumped with this one. The Submit to Manager button is not working. The only error I get is that assocID is not identified, but as far as I can tell it is identified.
    Any help would be appreciated.
    Thanks,
    MDawn

    I think the variable names may be causing a problem. I commented out the variable names, and it worked correctly, except for name. I had to change it to empName instead. Then that one worked. There's a good bit of overlap between your variable names and object names. (e.g., var assocID = assocID.rawValue) That was causing problems, too.
    Here's what I ended up doing to make the alerts/email work:
    //Create a variable to hold the document object
    var empname = empName.rawValue;
    var jobtitle = jobTitle.rawValue;
    var mgrname = mgrName.rawValue;
    var associd = assocID.rawValue;
    var accvachrs = accVacHrs.rawValue;
    //NAME
    if (empName.isNull){
              xfa.host.messageBox( "Please enter your name" );
              xfa.host.setFocus("page1.empName");
    //JOB TITLE
    else {
                        if (jobTitle.isNull){
                                  xfa.host.messageBox( "Please enter your job title" );
                                  xfa.host.setFocus("jobTitle");
    //MANAGER'S NAME
                        else {
                                  if (mgrName.isNull){
                                            xfa.host.messageBox( "Please enter a your manager's name" );
                                            xfa.host.setFocus("mgrName");
    //ASSOC ID
                                  else {
                                            if (assocID.isNull){
                                                      xfa.host.messageBox( "Please enter your Associate ID" );
                                                      xfa.host.setFocus("assocID");
    //ACCRUED VAC HOURS
                                            else {
                                                      if (accVacHrs.isNull){
                                                                xfa.host.messageBox( "Please enter your accrued vacation hours" );
                                                                xfa.host.setFocus("accVacHrs");
                                                      else {

    Glossary for this FAQ
    Routers: Any configurable device that sits between your computer and the internet link you have. This includes Modems that Route as well as "routers"
    Routers seem to fall into two categories
    Those that work straight from the box. See Apple Article HT1787
    NOTE :This Article has not been updated in content since Jan 04 Only being changed to an Article from the Previous Doc listing
    Even then some list that they need tweaks.
    and those that do not.
    This post will deal with what you may need to look at.
    First off make sure your device is acting as a DHCP server. (if you are already on the internet you may not have to bother with this.)
    Check in the Tiger System Preferences > Network Preference Pane, in the "Built in Ethernet" option from the "Show" drop down list.
    In Leopard the Networks are listed on the left with icons. The Airport Option will need you to access the Advance Button for the Next bit.
    Make sure the TCP/IP tab is the 'front' one. You should be able to see Configure IPv4 and it most likely reads Using DCHP. Make a note of your IP address. It will start 10.xxx.xxx.xxx or 192.168.xxx.xxx (the 'x' s will stand for any number between 1 and 255). The range 172.16.xxx.xxx is also a possible value at this point. Rarely used, but it is part of the RFC for Address Allocation for Private Internets.
    Your router is most likely to be configurable from your browser. You will need to find the IP address to type into the browser from any Readme or PDF files that came on the install disk or visit the makers website and download a manual.
    The Port Forward.com site lists many devices and clicking on one will take you to a list of Applications. This iChat will open an page that will start by telling you the defaults to access the device
    Opening or Allowing ports. Several Methods not all devices have all of them.
    DMZ (Demilitarised Zone)
    This is a less secure setting that basically opens all ports and points the incoming data to your computer. (not helpful if you have more than one computer on your LAN). It can be considered as an extreme form of Port Forwarding
    Port Forwarding (also Virtual Server or Pin Holes)
    These settings are usually found in an Advanced setting.
    You may need to set an incoming IP address (Usually 0.0.0.0 to any outside server), a port that data will arrive on, the Inside computer's IP address (your computer) and the port it will deal with the data on and the protocol it will use.
    See this pic for an example of the description above.
    In this example shows that on some Port AND Protocols need to be listed.
    iChat uses TCP and UDP so some devices will need the ports listed one by one and some settings done twice, once for each protocol. The example above has a "Both" setting
    See Apple Article HT1507 Previously Doc 93208 for more information. This is the Tiger iChat 3 list. The same ports are needed for Leopard except for these changes
    My Note 2:
    On the first link Note 1 under tables in that link would be better if it read:
    " 1. All iChat AV traffic is UDP -
    except for ports 5190 and 5298, which need to be open for both TCP as well;
    and 5220, 5222, which need to be open for TCP only. "
    Note 2
    GoggleTalk needs port 5223 on TCP. Also note the Server name for iChat 3 set ups
    UPnP Universal Plug n Play.
    This is a simple Plug and Play type of setting. iChat can find it's own way through a router if the device has this capability.
    By Not doing Port Forwarding, Triggering or DMZ and enabling UPnP the application is allowed to control the modem and the ports that are open.
    They close after the application has finished with them on a timed basis.
    On some devices the number of "hops" (how far away the UPnP can be "seen") can be reduced from a default of 4)
    Trigger Ports
    Some devices offer a security measure that works by a first or trigger port receiving a data packet and then opening further ports when accepted.
    The first port for incoming Video or Audio invites is port 5678.
    Pre iChat 4
    When you click on the invite window the process moves in to port 5060 (so these will need to be opened by the trigger port) for negotiating the final group of ports from the group of 20 (16384-16403 These will need to open when the trigger says so as well). Therefore port 5678 triggers ports 5678, 5060, 16384-16403. All on UDP. Port 5190 neeeds to trigger port 5190 for both TCP and UDP.
    See this variation where only the ports listed above are completed.
    The other single ports need to be set one by one in addition. (5220,5222, 5223 5297, 5298, 5353)Replace
    iChat 4
    The port used in IChat 4 is port 16402 instead of port 5060. The group of 20 ports is reduced to 10 (16393-16402). This is because all the In and Out Audio and Video data is on one port. Other that than the settings are the same.
    At this time there is no Info on the ports the Screen Sharing in iChat 4 uses.
    Wireless
    Here you will have to read around but this Apple Article TA25949 Previously Doc 58514 might be a good starting place.
    Essentially whether you are wireless or Ethernet to your routing device makes very little difference to the way you do things.
    Your computer will get two IPs from a DHCP server if you are connected by both methods. (iChat does not like this)
    Multiple devices
    Make sure only one is acting as a DHCP server. Make sure wireless devices are bridged properly.

  • How to remove submit buttons on workspace and use submit buttons on PDF instead?

    I am working with LiveCycle ES2. I will get submit buttons automatically render on workspace according to routes i designed after User component. However, I do not want that submit buttons on Flex. I would like to use submit buttons on PDF as designing in LiveCycle Designer.
    Could you please give a suggestion on this?
    Mac

    You would also want to ensure that the Adobe LiveCycle Form Bridge is not on the form.
    Here are some scenarios, from the Workbench help, which may help:
    If your process uses Adobe XML forms (XDP files), you can render the form to PDF and then use the Inject Form Bridge operation. To render to PDF, you use the renderPDFForm operation that the Forms service provides.
    Workspace ES provides a Complete button that users click to submit their forms. However, forms can also include submit buttons. When the Inject Form Bridge operation is used on a form, Workspace ES either hides the submit button, or disables the Complete button.
    Form design
    Result
    Design: The form includes no submit button.
    Result: Workspace ES disables the Complete button and users cannot submit the form.
    Design: The form includes one submit button.
    Result? Workspace ES hides the submit button and enables the Workspace ES Complete button.
    Design: The form includes a button (indirect submit) that points to a submit button (direct submit)
            Indirect-submit buttons always take precedence over direct-submit buttons, even if multiple submit buttons exist. Workspace ES always shows the indirect submit buttons.
    Result: Workspace ES hides the submit button and enables the Workspace ES Complete button.
    Design: The form includes multiple indirect-submit buttons that point to one or more direct-submit buttons.
    Results: Workspace ES disables the Workspace ES Complete button. The user must click the appropriate button on the form to submit it.
              The user can still save a draft version of the form or take the form offline
    Design: The form includes either an indirect- or direct-submit button in a repeating subform.
    Result: Workspace ES excludes these buttons for submitting the form in Workspace ES.
    Note: When the submit button that was added to the form design with the Process Fields form object to the form design is hidden, the button still provides the functionality for submitting the form.
    Submit requests are handled by Workspace ES, which acts as an intermediary between the LiveCycle ES server and the form. Also, forms can be used both offline and online.
    Hope that helps.

  • Cannot Get Animated Buttons to Work in DPS (InDesign 6.0) Help Please!!

    In DPS tips, using the iPad app, some of the navigational buttons appear like SWF buttons, but, I cannot get SWF buttons to work in DPS. I have been trying with Multi-States, but, cannot get that to work either. Can you tell me how to get a SWF like button to work in DPS - I'm working with ID 6.0.
    Do you have an eaasy answer? Is there a tutorial out there I can view? Is their a step-by-step I can read?
    BTW, I do understand how buttons work and the types of events that work in DPS.
    Thank you
    Lain Kennedy

    Hi Uwe,
    First, let me say "I cannot even believe all the wonderful information I have recieved from my original post," and, I want to thank you for your understanding.
    I have been a designer for many years, working before the computer, and, since the mid 80's working with a variety of software to produce both print and web projects. I must say, I am biased on the Adobe Creative Suite, and, have had amazing success with these tools.
    Nonetheless, I have been working with DPS for about a month now (and a month does not make a career), and, have to admit, I am looking at DSP as a Hybrid between Print and Web. Yet, it is neither print or wed, it is it's own element, and, I'm just having growing pains learning, especially the terminology.
    Yes, I am trying to explain SWF Buttons, when in reality, it is DPS Buttons, and, my thinking is based on print and web. Now, it is - in some ways - like going back to school learning DPS and DSP terminology. It is a bit frustrating, but, I know I will get it.
    Now that I have looked at my first MSO test, I followed the instructions in DPS Tips, I realize that the Button is in the "Normal State" as I (interact, this is my terminology) touch or hover to make the button work. It is in the "Click" state that the Button triggers the MSO to work, and, I finally get that now - okay, I'm slow to learn. And, I will be building a complex MSO to prove the point to myself.
    I was wondering, besides DPS Tips, are there any books, apps, specific sites that are very specific on "ALL" the things one can do with DSP? 
    Again, thank you and, all the folks who have taken their time to respond to my post. All the information is truly appreciated.
    Sincerely,
    Lain Kennedy

    Did you try another restore and this time not to restore from a backup and see if that makes a difference? This is what Apple would tell you to do next based on my iphone 5 fiasco.
    Make sure all your data is available on your computer for manual syncing later.
    Since you did the hard reset I assume that means your home button isn't broken only that it got frozen before. Were you able to get the Apple logo after the reset? Did it boot?
    And you are using iTunes 10.7?
    I'm just trying to help get you going.
