Event handling from third-party non-visual .NET assemblies

With the advent of PB15, we're taking another look at the .NET versions of Powerbuilder. We have one problem which has always been a show-stopper for us. Perhaps now there's more experience with the product, someone knows how to get this working.

We have a 3rd party non-visual .NET assembly which generates asynchronous events. In C#, when you create the object, you pass it an event handling routine:

   ThirdPtyObject.Session session = new ThirdPtyObject.Session(sessionOptions, new EventHandler(MyEventProcessing));

Elsewhere within the code you define the event processing which takes place when this event is triggered:

   static public void MyEventProcessing(ThirdPtyObject.Event eventObj, ThirdPtyObject.Session session)


   // ... your event processing code goes here


How do you code this up in Powerbuilder .NET? Can anybody point me to some documentation or an example? Or is this like the old non-visual COM objects, which you need to wrap as a visual ActiveX before you can code the events?

Many thanks in advance for any assistance.
