I have a codebase that has mixed VB.NET and C#: it is slowly being rewritten into purely C#, but for now it has to be mixed.  Unfortunately, this has left me with a situation where a C# library that has events needs to communicate those events to a form application written in C#.

I have plenty of programming experience, both with VB.net and C#, but I haven't really gotten into the intricacies of events, especially between the two languages.  I've managed to wire-up events strictly in VB, and the same with C# (once or twice each)... but not across the two.

I'm looking for examples.  The basics are:
 * Form application in VB, displays "what's going on" to the user
 * C# library, firing events that indicate what's going on
 * need the VB app to handle the C# events

I don't know if this is possible.  Pointers are welcome, but please don't waste time focusing on the mixed environment unless doing so will result in real progress.
