ActiveX event handlers

Has anyone an example of how to catch the OnFileEvent of the activeX control?
In the object browser the signature is this

public delegate void IID_ISource_onFileEventEventHandler(object sender, AxJVueAXLib.IID_ISource_onFileEventEvent e)
Member of AxJVueAXLib

When the handler catches it, the event id or description doesnt seem to be available

public void OnFileEventEventHandler(object sender, AxJVueAXLib.IID_ISource_onFileEventEvent e)
String eventParam;
     //This returns a valid control
     AxJVueAXLib.AxJVueAXControl jvc = (AxJVueAXLib.AxJVueAXControl)sender;

     //Returns System.__ComObject
     eventParam = e.ToString();

     //This does not work
     //int eventID = e.getEventID();
     //eventParam = e.getEventParameter();

     //This does not work
     //int eventID = e.arg0.getEventID();

     //This does not work
     //var arg = e.arg0;
     //int EventID = arg.GetType().GetMethod("getEventID", System.Reflection.BindingFlags.IgnoreCase).Invoke(arg, null);

    Event object full declaration (implementation) is not known at compilation
    time, so late binding on the base of .NET Reflection mechanism should be used
    to access the object methods and data, i.e.

    Type eventType = e.arg0.GetType();
    Int id =(int)eventType.InvokeMember("getEventID",System.Reflection.BindingFlags.InvokeMethod, null, e.arg0, null);
