Example script for showing Mail Envelope based on User’s Role

Example script for showing Mail Envelope based on User’s Role

  • Comments 1

The option to “Submit as Email” doesn’t include the form in the body of the mail, so here’s another way to encourage your form-fillers to send their forms as email and include that body.

This script could be used in a Blogger form to turn on the Mail Envelope when the user switches to the “Email” view. That event could be triggered by the form-filler using the View menu, or even by a Rule on a button. It also makes some decisions based on the user’s current role so you can see how to do that.

 

function XDocument::OnSwitchView(eventObj) {

  var mail = XDocument.View.Window.MailEnvelope;

 

  if (XDocument.View.Name == "Email") {

    // get nodes from DOM

    var blog = XDocument.DOM.selectSingleNode("/dfs:myFields/dfs:dataFields/d:blog");

   

    var id       = blog.selectSingleNode("@ID");

    var title    = blog.selectSingleNode("@Title");

    var blogger  = blog.selectSingleNode("@BloggerName");

    var replies  = blog.selectNodes("d:reply/@ReplyName");

 

    // Set To field to include blog and the original blogger

    mail.To = "blog; " + blogger.text;

 

    // Set CC field to include all the replies (minus the current one)

    if (replies != null) {

      var cc = "";

      for (var i = 0; i < replies.length - 1; i++) {

        cc += replies(i).text + "; ";

      }

      mail.CC = cc;

    }

 

    // Set subject to look like a thread

    var subject = "Blog " + id.text + " - " + title.text;

    if (XDocument.Role != "Create")

      subject = "RE: " + subject;

    mail.Subject = subject;

 

    // Show the mail envelope

    mail.Visible = true;

  }

  else {

      mail.Visible = false;

  }
