Email as both PDF & XML

I am creating an order form for a client. I need a button that, on click, creates both a PDF file and an XML data file and attaches both to the same email. So far, I am failing gloriously on coming up with something that works. I am currently working in Adobe LiveCycle Designer ES4. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

It's not possible from a script, only by attaching the desired files manually to an email.

So it is possible to do it through script for one or the other, but not for both. Would you mind explaining (if you know), why that is?

I really appreciate the effort. I am doing my best to learn. I am not new to JavaScript but I am new to LiveCycle Designer and it seems like I am probably going to be working with it a fair bit in the future. The more I know, the better. This was the only bit that really threw me on the project.

Why? Well, because the builtin scripting methods and APIs in Adobe Acrobat/Reader only handle a singe file.

Here's the documentation of Acrobats JavaScript API:

Here's the LiveCycle scripting reference:
https://help.adobe.com/en_US/livecycle/8.2/LiveCycle_Designer_Scripting_Basics.pdf

See table on page 85. It lists, what scripting methods from Acrobat JS API are used.
