How to get newid of inserted record using LinqDataSource?

With SqlDataSource, you could obtain the ID of the record that was just inserted, using code similar to this (originally obtained from

  Protected Sub SqlDataSource1_Inserting(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.SqlDataSourceCommandEventArgs) Handles SqlDataSource1.Inserting
    Dim Param As IDbDataParameter = CType(e.Command.Parameters.Item("@newid"), IDbDataParameter)
    Param.Size = 4
  End Sub

  Protected Sub SqlDataSource1_Inserted(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.SqlDataSourceStatusEventArgs) Handles SqlDataSource1.Inserted
    Dim newid As Object = e.Command.Parameters("@newid").Value
  End Sub
