this.submitForm( "mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org?" + "&subject=good news" + "&body=" + "Name: " + this.getField("SellerFirstName").value + " " + this.getField("SellerLastName").value + "\nEmail Address: " + this.getField("SellerEmail").value + "\nPhone Number: " + this.getField("SellerPhone").value + "\nBest Time to Contact: " + this.getField("SellerContactTime").value );
This script works just fine with the first four values, which are just text fields. However, the field "SellerContactTime" is a dropdown list with text options, and attempting to add it to this email causes my Submit button to do nothing.
Can someone tell me why I can't submit dropdown form values and how to solve the issue? Thanks!
If you used the correct field name there's no reason it shouldn't work. However, be aware that the mailto string has a character limit, and also it can't include line-breaks...
I would recommend you switch to using the mailDoc method, which doesn't have all of these limitations.
However, it also doesn't validate the required fields, like the submitForm method does, but that can be done using a script.
I've posted code that does that. Try searching the form for "validate required fields" and you should find some examples.
