[IronPython] Running IronPython code from C#

I had something working using IronPython.Runtime.OldClass and
IronPython.Runtime.OldInstance, but I don't even understand what i've

First, my IP script "ClassIP.py", defining a small class :

    class MyClass:
        def __init__ (self, text):
            self.text = text

        def test(self):
            return "Test " + self.text

And then a form with one TextBox in C# :

        public Form1()

            new ClassIP().Initialize();
            IronPython.Runtime.OldInstance current =
((IronPython.Runtime.OldClass)ClassIP.MyClass).Call("from C# !");

            IronPython.Runtime.Method currentTest =

            textBox1.Text = (string) currentTest.Call(current);

Is this something meaningful for you ?
