hi all,

I am trying out Dumbarton, to see whether C# class function can call into
ObjC class method. What I did is make a standard wrapper class
(MonoObjectRepresentaion) around the MonoObject, and register the C# member
function in ObjC, when the C# function is invoked,  in ObjC, the static
function MyClass_MyFunction() will be called with a MonoObject parameter
which the C# function belongs to. What I need is to retrieve the ObjC
MyClass object which contains the MonoObject itself, and send the
-(void)myFunction: method to it.

Symbolically, it basically mean calling from C# object into ObjC wrapper
    MyClass::MyFunction (in C#)   call into    [MyClass myFunction] (in

how to do this?

In C#:
namespace ABC
    public class MyClass
          extern public bool MyFunction();


In ObjC:

static void MyClass_MyFunction(MonoObject* thisObject)
        //??? my problem here is how to use thisObject to retrieve the
MonoObjectRepresentation object which contains it and make a call into the
object's method -(void)myFunction: ????

@interface MyClass: DBMonoObjectRepresentation

@implementation MyClass
+ (MonoClass*)monoClass
         MonoClass* monoClass = [DBMonoEnvironment monoClassWithName:"
ABC.MyClass" fromAssembly:[MainController myClassAssembly]];
          return monoClass;

-(id) init
         DBMonoEnvironment *monoEnvironment = [DBMonoEnvironment
         [monoEnvironment registerInternalCall:"ABC.MyClass::MyFunction()"
         return self;

-(void) myFunction
            //do something
