Syntax

LONG CreateSubmitFormAction (
BSTR url,
VARIANT_BOOL sendEmptyFields,
TxPDFSubmitType submitType
)
Parameters
url
Form submiting destination

sendEmptyFields
Specifies whether to send empty fields as well

submitType

Remarks

CreateSubmitFormAction allows users to submit form field values. A submit form action transmits the names and values of selected PDF controls to a specified uniform resource locator (URL). The URL is usually the address of a World Wide Web server that processes the data and sends a response.

The return value is an action identifier in the document's actions collection and can be used in AddControlToAction, OpenDocumentAction, PDFANNOTATION_OnBeforeFormatting, PDFANNOTATION_OnChange, PDFANNOTATION_OnKeyPress, PDFANNOTATION_OnSetFocus, PDFANNOTATION_OnLostFocus, PDFANNOTATION_OnMouseDown, PDFANNOTATION_OnMouseUp, PDFANNOTATION_OnMouseEnter, PDFANNOTATION_OnMouseExit, PDFANNOTATION_OnOtherControlChanged, PDFPAGE_SetAction, PDFANNOTATION_Action, PDFOUTLINENODE_Action.

Equivalent in new interface: IPDFDocument4::CreateSubmitFormAction.
