I have created a fillable pdf form with a submit button that emails it. i need the form to be non-fillable once emailed. Currently, the recipient receives it filled in, but can alter the form fields as it is still fillable. Please help!
In what application is this form going to be used?
If you are the one who is emailing it, add security to restrict changes. Or Flatten the fields. Or export to jpeg.
Tell us more about your process.
You should set the form to submit to a server-side script such as ASP.net or PHP. Sending using a server-side script eliminates the need for client-side email software such as OUTLOOK or Web Mail. If you can utilize ASP.net, then iTextSharp is available for the script to "flatten" the form fields.
Visit the following website for online ASP.net examples:
