Javascript help: submit button to use form field plus other text in Subject line

I have a form for which I made a Submit button.

It will be sending the form to two different email addresses.

I was able to find examples of javascript so I can use one of the form's fields as a subject line, however I would also like to have some other text in the subject as well, and I just can't seem to figure out how to add that.

this.mailDoc({cTo: "email_1;email_2", cSubject: this.getField("full_name").valueAsString});

Before "full_name" I'd like to have the Title Of Form. So the email subject like would be "Title of Form_full_name"

I can't seem to get that to work... do I make it:

cSubject="Title of Form_" this.getField("full_name").valueAsString});

?

Please help.

You concatonate strings like this:

cSubject="Title of Form_" + this.getField("full_name").valueAsString});

The "+" is the concatonation operator.

Here's an article on string manipulation in JavaScript. It shows a few different ways to build strings:

Here's an article on setting up email properties from a script. It also shows how to maniuplate strings:

Correct, the code fragment was out of context, so I missed a couple of bits there. Good Catch!!
