Setting the email address


(Darren Rockett) #1

I am using the following to set the email address but it appears blank both when pressing the mail button and when saving and selecting open in email

LL18

   _ll.ExportOptions.Add(LlExportOption.ExportMailTo, EmailTo)

Thanks for your help in advance

Hi Darren,

thank you for your post.

What content is handed over in the variable “EmailTo”? Please have a look into the .NET Export Sample:

…\combit\LL18\Programmable Samples and Declaration\Microsoft .NET\VB.NET Export Sample

[code]LL.ExportOptions.Clear()
LL.ExportOptions.Add(LlExportOption.ExportSendAsMail, “1”)
LL.ExportOptions.Add(LlExportOption.ExportMailTo, “combit GmbH SMTP:llmailtest@combit.net”)
LL.ExportOptions.Add(LlExportOption.ExportMailSubject, “combit List & Label mail test”)
LL.ExportOptions.Add(LlExportOption.ExportMailShowDialog, “1”)
LL.ExportOptions.Add(LlExportOption.ExportMailSendResultAs, “text/html”)

// Start export
LL.Export(exportConfiguration) [/code]

It should work with your code. You can have look into the debwin logfile to check what content is handed over to List & Label:

  1. Close your application.
  2. Run the debug tool “debwin3.exe” from “…\combit\LL18\Tools”.
  3. Activate the option “Logging > Force Debug Mode” in debwin.
  4. Run your application and reproduce the mentioned behavior.
  5. You can read the logfile using a text editor, e.g. editor.exe

Hi Christian,

Thanks for coming back to me, here is a test based on the example, I really just want to populate to To box whether they press email or export

Public Function Print() As Boolean Implements IReporting.Print

Hi Darren,

thank you for your post.

Your code looks fine. It should work. Have you created a debwin logfile? Here you can see what’s going on behind the scenes of List & Label. You can open the logfile with any text editor and search for “mailto”.

Please note that the LlXSetParameter functions are obsolete. We recommend to use the LlExportOption functions instead.
