I would like for a person if they have questions about the form they are using to be able to email me.
Is there a way to get a email window or pop up to appear.
ThanksFebruary 16, 2010 at 2:29 pm #5045
The TEXT object (Common Visuals) has an HTML setting you can use and therefore one way is to use the standard ‘mailto:<youremail>’ methodFebruary 16, 2010 at 9:29 pm #5046
Thanks for the reply, I did not now about mailto, thank for the heads up. I Google mailto and got the code for it. Is there a way to get mailto to open in a new window rather then closing the form when it is executed as I have mailto in varying places in the form and want the user to get back to were they were and not have to start over.
Thanks againFebruary 16, 2010 at 10:15 pm #5047
Here is the code I an using it opens the email in a separate window but it only works ONE time?
I mean literally one time, after that the blank page opens but no email window, if I take the target=”_blank” out the email window will show ONE time after that nothing.
Even if you close the form and reopen it it will not work.
Any insight is appreciated.

Sorry.. lost in terms of what you are trying to say..
but what about looking at a different approach to mitigate the need for users to have to send you email (and of course delay their completion. Consider what sort of questions your users may want to ask. look at adding in ‘explanation’ fields (maybe a ? asset and under that ‘is clicked’ do a ‘show message’) or even the tooltip function perhaps.
and then if they still need to ask more questions, give them instructions to send you email from their mail client (and then you can take their question to review your form and update by new revision to help future users)February 17, 2010 at 12:42 pm #5053
Sorry the above was so unclear.
<a href= "mailto:xxxxxxxx" Target="_Blank" >Click here to email me</a>
This code or any version of mailto works only ONE time?, even if I close out P.F and re-open my form it will not work a second time, I have to delete it save the form then re-add it if I want the mailto to work a second time.
Also thanks for the above I am doing some of it already and I will see what else I can add from your suggestions.February 17, 2010 at 12:48 pm #5054
would seem to suggest some ‘caching’ in your browser causing this.
ps.. I’d suggest you ‘edit’ your post asap.. leaving your email here will quickly get it into a load of ‘spam’ lists I’m sure if you don’t have edit rights (sure you do though) get back asap and can do that for youFebruary 17, 2010 at 12:55 pm #5055
Thanks I did not catch that, I do not see where I can edit post, if you would remove it I would be greatfulFebruary 17, 2010 at 12:58 pm #5056
ps… other option.. add in a simple button (or under a normal text file) and the look at what the ShowURL behaviour can do.. where you enter in the URL as a simple ‘mailto’ (no need for the a herf elements)February 17, 2010 at 2:18 pm #5057
Thanks again, I will check out your other options, also the above code was working just NOT in CHROME, but working fine in I.E and FIREFOX.
Thanks again for your help.
