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
The following is the syntax to declare an anonymous method in C#.
In C#, delegates are reference types available in the system namespace. A delegate is a type-safe function pointer that can contain one or more references to methods with the same signature and return type as the delegate. Delegates are used to pass methods as parameters to other methods. Event handlers are nothing more than methods called through delegates. The delegate in C # is very similar to the function pointer in C and C ++, but unlike the function pointer in C, the delegate is object-oriented, type-safe, and secure.
