C# Delegate technique

Delegate is one of the fantastic tool & technique in C#.NET. Using deleagte technique the following benefits could be avaialed

  • One can define a method without name (Anonymous Method)
  • One can pass a Method as argument to another Method
  • Can join (or Add) two or more non-returnable methods methods
  • Core to combine event and event actions

Here is a simple example that demonstrates how delegates are being used in C#

Delegate used with instance method, static method, general named method and Anonymous method

Delegate Example


using System;

using System.Collections.Generic;

using System.Linq;

using System.Text;

public delegate int DelType(int n);

namespace DelDemo


    class Num


        int a;

        public Num() { a = 0; }

        public Num(int n) { a = n; }

        public void Disp() { Console.WriteLine("Data is " + a); }

        public int Power(int n) // Instance method


            int r = 1;

            while ( n> 0)


                r = r * a;



            return r;


        static public int Rev(int t) // Static method


            int r = 0;


            while (t > 0)


                r = (r * 10) + (t % 10);

                t = t / 10;


            return r;



    class Program


        static int Fact(int n) // Named method


            int f=1;


            return f;


        static void Main(string[] args)


            DelType act = delegate(int n)  //Anonymous method


                int s = 0;

                while (n > 0)


                    s = s + (n % 10);

                    n = n / 10;


                return s;


            Console.WriteLine("Sum of digit is "+act(234));

            Num p = new Num(5);

            act = Num.Rev;    // Using static method

            Console.WriteLine("Reverse number is " + act(567));

            act = Fact; // Using general named method

            Console.WriteLine("Factorial is " + act(5));

            act = p.Power; //Using instance method

            Console.WriteLine("Power is " + act(3));
