Func Delegate in C#

We already know about delegates in C# and I have previously posted about basics of delegates in C#. Following are posts about basic of delegates I have written.

Delegates in C#
Multicast Delegates in C#

In this post we are going to learn about Func Delegates in C#. As per MSDN following is a definition.

“Encapsulates a method that has one parameter and returns a value of the type specified by the TResult parameter.”

Func can handle multiple arguments. The Func delegates is parameterized type. It takes any valid C# type as parameter and you have can multiple parameters as well you have to specify the return type as last parameters.

Followings are some examples of parameters.
Func<int T,out TResult>
Func<int T,int T, out Tresult>

Now let’s take a string concatenation example for that. I am going to create two func delegate which will going to concate two strings and three string. Following is a code for that.

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;

namespace FuncExample
    class Program
        static void Main(string[] args)
            Func<string, string, string> concatTwo = (x, y) => string.Format("{0} {1}",x,y);
            Func<string, string, string, string> concatThree = (x, y, z) => string.Format("{0} {1} {2}", x, y,z);

            Console.WriteLine(concatTwo("Hello", "Jalpesh"));

What is Inversion of control and why we need it?

Most of programmer need inversion of control pattern in today’s complex real time application world. So I have decided to write a blog post about it. This blog post will explain what is Inversion of control and why we need it. We are going to take a real world example so it would be better to understand.

The problem- Why we need inversion of control?

Before giving definition of Inversion of control let’s take a simple real word example to see why we need inversion of control. Please have look on the following code.

public class class1
    private class2 _class2;

    public class1()
       _class2=new class2();

public class class2
     //Some implementation of class2

I have two classes “Class1” and “Class2”.  If you see the code in that I have created a instance of class2 class in the class1 class constructor. So the “class1” class is dependent on “class2”. I think that is the biggest issue in real world scenario as if we change the “class2” class then we might need to change the “class1” class also. Here there is one type of dependency between this two classes that is called Tight Coupling. Tight coupling will have lots of problem in real world applications as things are tends to be change in future so we have to change all the tight couple classes that are dependent of each other. To avoid this kind of issue we need Inversion of control.

IUnlockJoy I build amazing Windows Phone Apps event –11th August rocks!!

Last Saturday ,11th August Microsoft and Ahemdabad .NET user group has organized the IUnlockJoy I build amazing Windows Phone Apps  event. It was first in india as IUnlockJoy campaign was just launched by Microsoft before 3 days. It was superb and well organized thanks to Dhola Mahesh, Prabjhot Baxi,Kaushal Bhavasar and Pranjal Nigam.

It was a great event with almost 100+ people during holiday. Event was started by a keynote speaker Mahesh Dhola. He introduced IUnlockJoy- I build amazing Windows Phone Apps campaign and some of benefits of it.


After his session Prabjhot singh Baxi has taken a session about how you can get best out of windows phone. He has describe all the process from opening a developer account to publish an app to market place. The session was full of information and I really enjoyed it.
