How do I email a pdf form using Javascript in LiveCycle?

I created a form in LiveCycle with Javascript code.   I added a submit button which when clicked, the Javascript validation code is executed.  When validation passes, I want to email the form as a PDF.   How would I do this using Javascript in Livecycle?   I tried this.mailto and this.maildoc and they do not work.

You can use javascript to submit the form, but javascript can not send email.

at the end of your validation script add document.forms["formname"].submit();

Once the form is submitted the server (that receives the form data)  must process the form and transmit the email. So you will need to call a server side script (on your web site) to actually send the PDF file as an attachment.
