|Delegates in C#|
Delegates are types. The objects in such types are methods. With the introduction of delegates, methods become data.
A delegate is a type the values of which consist of methods
Delegates allow us to work with variables and parameters that contain methods
An example which defines a simple delegate (a type of methods) called NumericFunction. The example illustrates both existing, named methods in NumericFunction and a new, anonymous method in in the type.
Illustrates a method that takes two NumericFunction objects as input, and which returns a NumericFunction.
Delegates make it possible to approach the functional programming style
Methods can be passed as parameters and returned as results to and from other methods
