Adobe form help

maryanntxDecember 20, 2001

I need to put a form on a webpage that can be filled in and e-mailed back to me. I have the complete Adobe program although I have never used it.

Can someone who has experience with this tell me if it's a complicated process or something that I can master during the holidays?? I want to put the mailto code in a submit button. Is this possible? Would appreciate any and all help!!! TIA

There are thousand's of free scripts on the net which mail the content of a form to you. Just try a search.
I can also send you a small php-script wich does the trick.

(form method=post action='mail.php' name="form1")
Your name: (input type="text" name="Name")(br)
Your current emailaddress: (input type="text" name="Email")(br)
(input type="submit" value="Go!")
(/form)

Just a form above, can be anything you like. Just dont forget to give each field in the form a name and add a line to the mail.php with that name as follows:
Make a new file called 'mail.php' and place it in the same dir as the form.
(?php
$mail_to = "youremail@adress.here";
$mail_subject = "subject of the mail";
$mail_body = "You have got a new mail by form:\n\n";
if (isset($Name)==1) $mail_body .= "Name of user: $Name\n";
if (isset($Email)==1) $mail_body .= "Email of user: $Email\n";
mail($mail_to, $mail_subject, $mail_body);
?)

That is about it: you can place other html-tags in the mail.php saying "Thank you for your mail" or whatever.

Good luck, if you need any help post back or mail me.

Niels.

Thanks Neil! I can see that I will be doing quite a bit of studying on this! The form that I plan to use will be a job application form. So that someone can go to the website, fill out the application, hit submit, and it is e-mailed to me. Do you think using the php script is the best way for this use?

yup,.. php is the best (in my humbble opinion).

Niels.

It works quite easy:
each part of the form has a name wich contains a value ppl fill in. That same name is used in the php-script. So you add boxes to the from and add lines to the php-script as much as you need.

Niels.

P.S. If you send me a mail, i can do it for you if you think it will cost you too much time.
