[IronPython] How to get the result of callback

We have a feature in v1.x which is almost exactly what you want called CreateLambda / CreateMethod.  This allows you to give the body of a function which takes parameters and it gives you a strongly typed delegate back.  Unfortunately we removed it from v2.0 because it was getting in the way of our refactoring work but that doesn’t mean it won’t come back at some point.

That being said we actually have enough features in place to make this work manually.  Here’s the code to do this in Python:

import clr
from IronPython.Hosting import PythonEngine
from Microsoft.Scripting.Utils import Function
pe = PythonEngine.CurrentEngine

a = pe.EvaluateAs[Function[object, object, bool]]('lambda x,y: x>y')

in C# it’d be something like:

Function<object, object, bool> func = pe.EvaluateAs<Function<object, object, bool>>(“lambda x,y: x>y”);
bool res1 = func(2,3);
bool res2 = func(3,2);

I want to call python lambda expression in C#. The following is lambda expression.

"CheckNumber = x,y:x>y"

So, I want to use C# to execute the expression, I wirte a following function that,
The parameter expression is lambada expression, the parameters is a key-value list. The key is the name of parameter in lambda expression 'x' and 'y'.
 public object CallPythonLambda(string expression, Hashtable parameters) {
            PythonEngine pe = PythonEngine.CurrentEngine;
            //TODO: not implement.

Can anybody help me to complete the function? By the way, the version of IronPython is 2.0A3.

Thanks a lot!
