    Change "Thank You" message when working with fillable PDF-Forms

    Asked by cuno on February 11, 2016 at 08:33 AM


    I work with fillable PDF-Forms and the users are German- and French-speaking. As some of them don't understand the English "Thank You!" message, that pops up in the PDF form, they click several times on the submit button. I tried to change the content of the message, but I wasn't able to.

    Finally I found out, that a JavaScript function named confirmSend() is downloaded, but unfortunately I don't know where to edit the variable "cMSg" that contains the displayed text. 

    Thank you and best regards

    I see that you are looking to change the language of the thank you message returned on your pdf when it gets submitted.

    Have you tried changing the form language or changing the thank you message as a possibility?

    Hi KadeJM

    Thanks for your quick answer.

    I tried both without succes. Your second Link "changing the thank you message" works only for HTML-forms not for PDF-forms.

    This feature will only work on web forms, not PDF forms

    I hope this feature will be implemented soon.

    I solved my problem by inserting an additional JavaScript message-function in german and french to the submit-button.

    I am sorry to say that it is not possible for PDF forms. However,we are glad to hear that, the issue has been resolved for you by adding JavaScript code.

    Thank you for sharing your solution with us.
