Anonymous Methods and Lambda Expressions

As yet in the content, the greater part of the applications you created added different bits of code to Main(), which, somehow or another, sent solicitations to a given item. On the other hand, numerous applications require that an item have the capacity to convey back to the substance that made it utilizing a callback instrument. While callback components can be utilized as a part of any application, they are particularly basic for graphical client interfaces in that controls, (for example, a catch) need to summon outer routines under the right circumstances (when the catch is clicked, when the mouse enters the catch surface, et cetera). Under the .NET stage, the agent sort is the favoured method for characterizing and reacting to callbacks inside of utilizations. Basically, the .NET agent sort is a sort safe question that “indicates” a technique or a run down of systems that can be summoned at a later time.

Not at all like a customary C++ capacity pointer, nonetheless, .NET representatives are classes that have fabricated in backing for multi-casting and offbeat system conjuring. In this part, you will figure out how to make and control delegate sorts, then you’ll examine the C# occasion catchphrase, which streamlines the procedure of working with representative sorts. Along the way, you will likewise look at a few representative and occasion driven dialect components of C#, including mysterious strategies and system bunch transformations. I wrap up this section by looking at lambda expressions. Utilizing the C# lambda operator (=>), you can determine a piece of code articulations (and the parameters to go to those code proclamations) wherever a specifically delegate is required. As you will see, a lambda expression is minimal more than a mysterious strategy in mask, and gives an improved way to deal with working with representatives.

As you have seen, when a guest wishes to listen to approaching occasions, it must characterize a custom system in a class (or structure) that matches the mark of the related representative, for instance:

class Program

{

static void Main(string[] args)

{

SomeType t = new SomeType();

// Assume “SomeDelegate” can point to methods taking no

// args and returning void.

t.SomeEvent += new SomeDelegate(MyEventHandler);

}

// Typically only called by the SomeDelegate object.

public static void MyEventHandler()

{

// Do something when event is fired.

}

}

When you consider it, then again, routines, for example, MyEventHandler() are at times planned to be called by any piece of the system other than the conjuring delegate. To the extent efficiency is concerned, it is somewhat of a trouble (however not the slightest bit a center piece) to physically characterize a different strategy to be called by the agent object. To address this point, it is conceivable to relate an occasion straightforwardly to a square of code articulations at the time of occasion enrolment. Formally, such code is termed an unknown strategy. To outline the grammar, look at the accompanying Main() technique, which handles the occasions sent from the Car class utilizing unknown strategies, as opposed to explicitly named occasion handlers:

{

static void Main(string[] args)

{

Console.WriteLine(“***** Anonymous Methods *****\n”);

Car c1 = new Car(“SlugBug”, 100, 10);

// Register event handlers as anonymous methods.

c1.AboutToBlow += delegate

{

Console.WriteLine(“Eek! Going too fast!”);

};

c1.AboutToBlow += delegate(object sender, CarEventArgs e)

{

Console.WriteLine(“Message from Car: {0}”, e.msg);

};

c1.Exploded += delegate(object sender, CarEventArgs e)

{

Console.WriteLine(“Fatal Message from Car: {0}”, e.msg);

};

// This will eventually trigger the events.

for (int i = 0; i < 6; i++)

c1.Accelerate(20);

Console.ReadLine();

}

}

Once more, notice that the Program sort no more characterizes particular static occasion handlers, for example, CarAboutToBlow() or CarExploded(). Maybe, the anonymous (otherwise known as mysterious) techniques are characterized inline at the time the guest is taking care of the occasion utilizing the += punctuation.

The fundamental language structure of an unknown strategy coordinates the accompanying pseudo-code:

class Program

{

static void Main(string[] args)

{

SomeType t = new SomeType();

t.SomeEvent += delegate (optionallySpecifiedDelegateArgs)

{ /* statements */ };

}

}

When handling the first AboutToBlow event within the previous Main() method, notice that you are not specifying the arguments passed from the delegate:

c1.AboutToBlow += delegate

{

Console.WriteLine(“Eek! Going too fast!”);

};

Entirely talking, you are not required to get the approaching contentions sent by a particular occasion. On the other hand, on the off chance that you wish to make utilization of the conceivable approaching contentions, you should indicate the parameters prototyped by the agent sort (as appeared in the second treatment of the AboutToBlow and Blasted occasions).

For instance:

c1.AboutToBlow += delegate(object sender, CarEventArgs e)

{

Console.WriteLine(“Critical Message from Car: {0}”, e.msg);

};
