I am trying to get the contents of a form to send in an email. Below is the code but it does not add the text to the email.

<form method="post" action="mailto:[email protected]">
  First name:<br>
  <input type="text" name="firstname" value="MR">
  <br>
  Last name:<br>
  <input type="text" name="lastname" value="Test">
  <br><br>
  <input type="submit" value="send email" />
</form>

<input  type="text" name="firstname" id="fstName"/>
<input  type="text" name="lastname" id="lstName"/>

to get value of those textbox use this:

FirstName= $("#fstName").val();
LastName= $("#lstName").val();

  • It's a JQuey you can create a Submit function to get value and send it via Mail Oct 24, 2017 at 15:16
  • I have added the code but still it does not add the content when I select submit to the email. Below is the full code that I have.
