Dear Friends,

The index.php is linked to formTest.pdf
It successfully opens formTest.pdf created by pdfTex

When I click the submit button in formTest.pdf in order to activate Act.php,

I get an error message:
   You need to be running inside a web browser in order to submit this form

I use another file: calling.htm (also listed below),
there is no problem to activate Act.php.

I do not know where to start checking.
Be grateful if you could help. Thank you in advance.



Activate <a href= "formTest.pdf"  target="_blank">pdf-form</a>.


====== compiled into formTest.pdf



\begin{Form}[method=POST, encoding=html,

Name: \TextField[name=yourName,value={}]{}


\Submit{Send} \qquad\qquad \Reset{Clear}




<form method=post action="Act.php">
<input type="submit" name="submitB">

Has been called.</body></html>
