Extracting Data entry using Javascript

Jun 04, 2014


I'm sure that this is relatively easily to do but I'm struggling to work it out and I'm hoping someone is able to help.

I have a feedback form within my course with 4 data entry boxes and a submit button. The data entry boxes all have variables assigned to them, 'Name', 'Email', ContactNumber' & 'Message'

What I would like to do is extract the information from the text boxes using a JavaScript trigger when the submit button  is pressed,  and then put it into the main body of an email. I would also like to be able to have my email address and the Subject field of the email populate automatically with the course name.

I haven't used JavaScript before which is probably the reason I struggling with this so much so I would really appreciate any help.

This should be everything you need, check out the javascript execute on the submit button for slide 5.

I found this in the forum a few weeks ago. You could too if the Serach tool was working....

var player = GetPlayer();

var useremail=player.GetVar("email");

var subject="VAE Engagement sur l' utilisation de velos a assistance Electrique";

var usernotes=player.GetVar("Note");

var exercisenotes1=player.GetVar("Note1");

var exercisenotes2=player.GetVar("Note2");

var exercisenotes3=player.GetVar("Note3");

var mailto_link='mailto:'+useremail+'?subject='+subject+'&body='+"Activity Notes - My thoughts on the Non-Discrimination policy:%0d%0A"+exercisenotes1+"%0d%0A%0d%0AActivity Notes - Situations I would report to the Values Line:%0d%0A"+exercisenotes2+"%0d%0A%0d%0AActivity Notes - Examples of Conflict of Interest situations:%0d%0A"+exercisenotes3+"%0d%0A%0d%0AGeneral Notes:%0d%0A"+usernotes;
