Send form results to the form submitter?

Thread began 2/04/2011 2:01 pm by dougdye381447 | Last modified 2/07/2011 11:32 am by Jason Byrnes | 1151 views | 7 replies |

Send form results to the form submitter?

Sorry, I couldn't find this in the Help system...

How can I send the form results as an email to the person who submitted the form? In another thread someone talked about a "dynamic from address", but I have no idea what that means or how to do it.

Thanks in advance...

On your form page, add the universal Email server behaivor. Select the option to create a file for the email message and select one of the templates.

For the to address, select entered value, click the lightning bolt next to value and select the email address form element.

Thanks Jason, I'll try this over the weekend. Expect a followup though, I'm just a dumb WYSIWYG guy...

Are things like "universal Email server behavior" covered in the documentation, or is that a Dreamweaver thing?
EDIT: Oh, I guess you mean to open WebAssist/Create Email Message, right?

Thanks again.

OK, I'm looking to work out what Jason said previously, but...

First... I click the "To" button to get to the screen where I can "select entered value". I click "Add" because that's the only way the "Enter value" becomes active. But when I click the lightning bolt, I only have the options to:
1. Create a site for this file
2. Choose a document type
3. Set up the site's testing server
4. Create a Recordset

I see no option that allows me to "select the email address form element". Not meaning to complain here, but I'd think that something as common as sending the form back to the form submitter would be at least addressed in some manner in the documentation.

Also, in Dreamweaver, how do I get the GUI to come up to make changes once I've set up Universal Email on a php page? For example, with WebAssist's Pro Maps for Google, you can click on the map on the page, then the Properties window gives you a button to click on, so you can edit the map with the GUI.

But I can't find any way to get the Email edit screen, and when I go to WebAssist/Create Email Message everything in the GUI is blank, as if I have to start all over.

Thanks in advance, getting a little frustrated here... the included docs are... sparse, to say the least...

the options you are getting in the dynamic data binding list indicate that your Dreamweaver site is not properly configured to allow for dynamic development.

See our learning resources page for details on configuring your Dreamweaver site:
resources.php


once Universal Email is applied to the page, you can edit the settings by opening the server behaviors panel (Window -> Server Behaviors) and double clicking on the universal Email server behavior in the list.

Thanks Jason. So I have to have a server set up? I had been working with the hosting server online. OK, let me get that together, thanks for the reply.
