Event parameter passed by reference doesn't work using VBScript

I have an Event "MyContextMenu" that I fire right before I plan to display a context menu.  It contains a BOOL* parameter bDisable that is passed by reference so if the client sets that to TRUE I will not put up the context menu.  This works fine in VB but when I try it in VBScript, it doesn't return the value the client passed.
Here is the definition for my event:
void FireMyContextMenu(BOOL FAR* bDisable)
{FireEvent(eventidMyContextMenu,EVENT_PARAM(VTS_PBOOL), bDisable);}
Here is the entry from the ODL:
[id(1)] void MyContextMenu(boolean* bDisable);
And finally here is the call to fire the event:
BOOL bDisable = FALSE;
FireMyContextMenu(&bDisable);// After this call with the following VBScript code bDisable should be TRUE
VBScript:
Sub Test2_MyContextMenu(bDisable)
bDisable = True
End Sub

Any ideas what I can do to make this work in both VB and VBScript without changing the data type (it's in the field already).
Thanks,
Steve

Sorry, but you will need to change the type of the event. The reason is VBScript only understands two data types: VARIANTs and IDispatch. Everything else is an error or ignored.

So instead of using BOOL*, you need to use VARIANT*.
