Frustration Supreme!

P: n/a
Compared to the other posts here, this ought to be a cakewalk for you guys;)

I'm trying to make a form in a pdf doc that will mail to me. I'm trying to
use the following script:

this.mailForm
(true, "na**@address.com", "", "", "Message Subject
Description")

And keep getting a syntax error saying 'illegal character, line 2'. Of
course, it doesn't tell me what it is, not to mention the fact that I got
this script from Acrobat's help file!

Ugh. Can anyone help me?

Thanks,
Mary

Hi!

I really don't know but I will make an attempt at suggesting a few things
that you could try. I may be wrong though .
I assume you haven't forgotten the ";" at the end of the line it is just
that you haven't included it in this post right ?
Although I seriously doubt that this is the problem, try instead of passing
the empty string like "" , give the reserved word null.
Now also try to go back and see that you have properly declared the mailForm
method (if its yours and not a library) and the object which it belongs to.
And also see if you are passing the appropriate number of parameters...
Also make sure that you haven't forgottern any parentheses or ";"s in
commands above this one.

That's all I can suggest... :)
Good luck !
