Submit to Form - requires a response - can this be ignored?

We have a submit to form - whether it's FDF or HTML, it requires our page that the information is 'posted' to to provide a response.

 

when that response is received by Acrobat, it opens the response in a new tab..

 

is there anyway to ignore that response, or capture it so that we can show on the original PDF the response message, and not open a new PDF document?

 

Thanks.

You can return FDF to Acrobat or the Reader that just displays a "Form data received" popup, and will not do anything else (e.g. open a new tab). You can of course also return an error message in case that is necessary. Take a look at this old blog post, which demonstrates how to return such data: https://khkonsulting.com/2017/08/connect-database-pdf-form-time-without-soap/ - search for the term "$returnXFDF" - the example is in PHP, but you should be able to transfer that to whatever environment you are using.
