Windows SIG: Advanced Delegates



  • The Monthly Meeting of the Windows SIG



    Jon Shemitz



    Presentation Overview

    Delegates may be the least-understood part of the CLR. Delegates look a bit like method pointers, but the differences go well beyond delegates' multi-cast abilities. I will start with a quick survey of delegate basics, including invocation list editing and event syntax (which few people seem to really understand). I will then explore 2.0's anonymous methods before concluding with a lengthy discussion of asynchronous delegate execution and the system ThreadPool. Along the way, I'll touch on minor topics like covariance and contravariance as well as creating a delegate instead of repeatedly invoking a dynamically loaded method.
