In iPad app what would be the easiest way to create a form that will store the data and send it to email?

Hello Experts,

I would like to create an application for iPad that will display a form for people to fill in their details like name, address and the phone number and when they press send button will automatically send it to desired email address. Can someone please help me to write the code for that??

Thank you!

Well, first, you are going to want to search for MFMailComposer so you can actually send mail within the app (and not have to go out to the Mail.app program).  

Have you had experience with TextFields?  You are going to need a few of these.  You can connect them and have the user enter information.  To access the TextField's text, you can call .text using dot syntax.  For example (myField.text).  I assume you do not want to have blank fields, so before you compose the mail, make sure to add:

if(![myField.text isEqualToString:@""] && ![myField.text isEqualToString@" "]) {

//Do stuff

}

This make sure that the above text field is not empty or just doesn't have a space in it.  

I would personally get all of the text from a text field and add this to an NSString.  I would then correctly format the string so it looks nice and the information is correct (as per what you wanted).  Now, simply call the MailComposer and it will be able to send.  I do not think that you can simply send without the user knowing (there will be some picker that has to be brought up).
