How to send an email from JavaScript

0 votes

I want my website to have the ability to send an email without refreshing the page. So I want to use Javascript.

<form action="javascript:sendMail();" name="pmForm" id="pmForm" method="post">
Enter Friend's Email:
<input name="pmSubject" id="pmSubject" type="text" maxlength="64" style="width:98%;" />
<input name="pmSubmit" type="submit" value="Invite" />

I want to call the function like this, but I have no idea what to put within the javascript code. 

I discovered one example using the mailto technique in my study, but from what I can see, it doesn't really transmit from the website.

In order to send an email directly from a website, my question is where I can locate the code to insert within the JavaScript function.

function sendMail() {
    /* ...code here...    */
}

Javascript does not natively support email sending.

However, you may access the user's mail client:

window.open('mailto:test@example.com');

There are also some parameters to pre-fill the subject and the body:

window.open('mailto:test@example.com?subject=subject&body=body');

How to get current formatted date dd/mm/yyyy in Javascript and append it to an input

The stringent equality operator (===) works exactly like the abstract equality operator (==), with the exception that no type conversion is performed, and the types must be the same to be regarded equal. Javascript Tutorial on Comparison Operators After performing any required type transformations, the == operator will check for equality.  Because the === operator does not perform the conversion, it will simply return false if two values are not of the same type.  Both are equally fast.
