>>> require 'mscorlib'
=> true
>>> System::String.to_clr_type
=> #<System::RuntimeType:0x000005c>

I hit send to quickly there is more

If I do pass it the correct types (which I got from creating instances)
@@login_event = EventManager.register_routed_event("login", RoutingStrategy.bubble, RoutedEventHandler.new{}.get_type, LoginControl.new.get_type)

then I get a new error
RoutedEvent Name 'login' for OwnerType 'Ruby.Classes.UserControl3$3' already used.

Which leads me to believe that either I'm doing it wrong or that that's not supposed to happen/supported yet and I have to file a bug report :)

How do I get to the CLR type definition of a class?

I assumed that the code below would just work or at least not fail where it did :)
@@login_event = EventManager.register_routed_event("login", RoutingStrategy.bubble, RoutedEventHandler, LoginControl)

That has IronRuby complaining about the wrong type of arguments and so on.
And I figure it's because the register_routed_event method expects a CLR type instead of a DLR one. The only way I know to get to the same information as typeof(RoutedEventHandler) is to create an instance and then calling get_type on it.  Is there anoter way for that?
