What languages can I use for implementing custom tasks?

Simple question here. What languages can I use for implementing custom tasks?

I believe the list is
C#
Visual Basic .NET
C (compiled in the .NET runtime)

So this would mean that I cannot simply write some SAS code and have that be a custom task. DI Studio allows SAS code to be saved as a "Custom Transform". I am trying to see if there is something similar in EG.

I know that I could write a stored process and run from EG, but it appears that this is as close as I can get to a custom task with just SAS code.

Can anyone confirm or refute these details?

John,

Custom tasks -- which behave as add-ins to Enterprise Guide -- are implemented using .NET. You can use any .NET language, but the most popular languages are C# and Visual Basic .NET.

We have over 20 examples (prebuilt and with source code) linked from:

Follow the link for "Extending SAS Enterprise Guide with Custom Tasks".
