Hi Uttpal,

Please try the below code:
 
public class ConPdfEmailC{
    Contact con;
    
    public ConPdfEmailC(ApexPages.StandardController stdController) 	{
        
        //con = [select Id, FirstName, LastName, Phone, Email from Contact where Id = :ApexPages.currentPage().getParameters().get('id')];
        con = (Contact)stdController.getRecord();
    }
    
    public pagereference sendAttach() {
        for(Contact cc : [SELECT Id, Name, Email__c FROM Contact WHERE Id =: con.Id]){
            Messaging.SingleEmailMessage semail = new Messaging.SingleEmailMessage();
            Messaging.EmailFileAttachment attach = new Messaging.EmailFileAttachment();
            PageReference pref = page.ConPdfEmail; // Visualforce Page Name
            pref.getParameters().put('id',(String)con.id);
            pref.setRedirect(true);
            Blob b;
            b = pref.getContent();
            attach.setFileName('ContactDetails.pdf');
            attach.setBody(b);
            semail.setSubject('Contact details');
            List<String> sendTo = new List<String>();
            sendTo.add(cc.Email__c);
            semail.setToAddresses(sendTo);
            semail.setPlainTextBody('Please find the attached contact details');
            semail.setFileAttachments(new Messaging.EmailFileAttachment[]{attach});
            Messaging.sendEmail(new Messaging.SingleEmailMessage[]{semail});
        }
        return null;
    }
}

No Chris, not like that it should automatically send email with pdf  when user click on "Send Email" button

Hi Uttpal,

Greetings to you!

Below is the sample code which I have tested in my org and it is working fine. Kindly modify the code as per your requirement.

Visualforce: ConPdfEmail
<apex:page standardController="Contact" renderAs="pdf">
    <apex:pageBlock >
        <apex:pageBlockSection columns="1">
            <apex:outputField Value="{!Contact.FirstName}"/>
            <apex:outputField Value="{!Contact.LastName}"/>
            <apex:outputField Value="{!Contact.Email}"/>
            <apex:outputField Value="{!Contact.Phone}"/>
        </apex:pageBlockSection>
    </apex:pageBlock>
</apex:page>

Controller:
public class ConPdfEmailC{
    Contact con;
    
    public ConPdfEmailC(ApexPages.StandardController stdController) 	{
        
        //con = [select Id, FirstName, LastName, Phone, Email from Contact where Id = :ApexPages.currentPage().getParameters().get('id')];
        con = (Contact)stdController.getRecord();
    }
    
    public pagereference sendAttach() {
        Messaging.SingleEmailMessage semail = new Messaging.SingleEmailMessage();
        Messaging.EmailFileAttachment attach = new Messaging.EmailFileAttachment();
        PageReference pref = page.ConPdfEmail; // Visualforce Page Name
        pref.getParameters().put('id',(String)con.id);
        pref.setRedirect(true);
        Blob b;
        b = pref.getContent();
        attach.setFileName('ContactDetails.pdf');
        attach.setBody(b);
        semail.setSubject('Contact details');
        String[] sendTo = new String[]{'khananasrehmani@gmail.com'};
            semail.setToAddresses(sendTo);
        semail.setPlainTextBody('Please find the attached contact details');
        semail.setFileAttachments(new Messaging.EmailFileAttachment[]{attach});
        Messaging.sendEmail(new Messaging.SingleEmailMessage[]{semail});
        return null;
    }
}

Visualforce: ConPdfEmail1
<apex:page standardController="Contact" extensions="ConPdfEmailC" action="{!sendAttach}">
	<apex:outputLabel value="Email Sent Successfully"/>
</apex:page>

Create a custom detail page button using ConPdfEmail1 visualforce page and add it to page layout.

Hi Anas,

Your code is working correctly but can you help me on this part.

It should fetch email address from the custom field and send email to that email address whenever i click on the "send email" button.

            Messaging.EmailFileAttachment attach = new Messaging.EmailFileAttachment();
            PageReference pref = page.ConPdfEmail; // Visualforce Page Name
            pref.getParameters().put('id',(String)con.id);
            pref.setRedirect(true);
            Blob b;
            b = pref.getContent();
            attach.setFileName('ContactDetails.pdf');
            attach.setBody(b);
            semail.setSubject('Contact details');
            List<String> sendTo = new List<String>();

Hi Anas,

The code is not working and also it is not giving any error.
Right now when i Click on the button it is moved to the ConPDFEmail1 page without giving any error.

It is working fine for me. If you are not getting an email in the inbox, I suggest you check the spam folder of your email. See screenshot:
