    new EventHandler<PersonService.LoadByIdCompletedEventArgs>(
           client_LoadByIdCompleted);
  // Call the service method
  client.LoadByIdAsync(id);
}

void client_LoadByIdCompleted(object sender,

{
  // This method is called after the call to LoadByIdAsync() is finished
  PersonService.PersonDtopersonReturnedByService = e.Result;
  // ...
}
