Generic Delegates in C# With Examples

In the previous article, we have learned about the delegates and their types. Now in this article, we are going to discuss the generic delegates in C#.

What are the generic delegates?

The  Func ,  Action  and  Predicate  are the three generic delegates which were introduced in .NET 3.5 and are availables in System namespace.

We can make use of all these three predefined generic delegates when we want to invoke the methods without defining the delegates explicitly.

C# – Anonymous Method with examples

What is Anonymous Method?

 Anonymous method  : In C#, An anonymous method is a method without name and return type.

It can be created using the delegate keyword with the optional parameters and can be assigned to a variable of the delegate type.
An anonymous method is an inline statement or expression which makes the code easy and more readable.

An anonymous method is useful when we want to hook an action directly to an event without separately creating an event handler.

Syntax to declare an anonymous method

In C#, a  Delegate  is a reference type that is available in system namespace.

A delegate is a wrapper of a function, or simply we can say that it is a Typesafe function pointer which can hold the reference of one or more methods of the same signature and return type.

Syntax to define a delegate in C#

In C#, The declaration of a delegate is very similar to a method signature. It can also have parameters and the return type as a normal method.

Following is the syntax to declare a delegate.

<AccessModifier> delegate <ReturnType> <DelegateName>(<Parameters>)
