Deep dive into InfoPath

I am on new and thrilling territories right now, not really sure what I am doing but it's getting clearer and clearer... My mission is to place a button in an InfoPath form, with code behind that transforms the xml file into a PDF file and then inserts itself into a mail and of course - sends the mail :) Easy I thought, someone must have done that before. Googled it, found one article. And I have tried to follow it, but since I am not a developer there were some "issues" that needed to be understood first. Finally I have produced some code thanks to VS, VSTA, Notepad (i love Notepad btw :)), and some hacking into web.config and other shit. So now, wow, tried to execute my code and - nothing happens. Or, something happens, but it just seems to reload or tries to run the code but no PDF is created. So I think I have to make sure that the dll files are listed in web.config and that my itext-dll is registered. To be continued, the whole code will be published here if I ever make it :) I really miss my dev pro's at work now....
