Anonymous Methods

These are superseded by Lambda Expressions
Added in .NET Framework 2.0


Anonymous methods allow you to define a delegate inline.
An anonymous method provides a way of passing a block of code as an argument instead of creating an explicit named method.
Use the delegate keyword to declare a delegate type first
A parameter is then passed to an anonymous method using the delegate keyword
no parameters

delegate void Delegate_Type(); 

Delegate_Type delegate_variable = delegate()
{ // do something }

instead of

delegate void Delegate_Type(); 

void Method_Name()
{ // do something }
Delegate_Type delegate_variable = Method_Name;

with a parameter

delegate int Delegate_Type(int x); 

Delegate_Type delegate_variable = delegate(int paramater)
{ return paremeter * parameter; }

instead of

delegate int Delegate_Type(int x); 

int Method_Name(int parameter)
{ return parameter * parameter; }
Delegate_Type delegate_variable = Method_Name;
