C# delegate and event

Hi,

I am not sure what this code means:

   public delegate void FirmwareDownloadProgressDelegate(object sender, int value);
   private event FirmwareDownloadProgressDelegate m_FirmwareDownloadProgress;

  public event FirmwareDownloadProgressDelegate FirmwareDownloadProgress
        {
            add    { m_FirmwareDownloadProgress += new FirmwareDownloadProgressDelegate(value); }
            remove { m_FirmwareDownloadProgress -= new FirmwareDownloadProgressDelegate(value); }
        }
These functions are defined in a class which I will instanstiate . How can I use the value?
I am new to C# ,please help

That code is basically defining an event that could be fired off by your class. Then, "clients" those who use this class, will be able to subscribe to your event and do some actions based on event's data.

You can get more info on this here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa645739(v=vs.71).aspx

That page has a good example on how to create and subscribe to an event.

Hope this helps.

Hi ,

Suppose I am a client of this class, how do I subscribe to use this class event?
Could you please give me an example?
Thanks,

sure...


Let's say that you have a class MyClass that has your delegate and an event defined.
In your class MyClient you'll say something like this:

MyClass.MyEventName += <name of a function that will handle your event>;

A hint, when you subscribe to an event, after you press +=, hit Tab key couple of times. Visual Studio will automatically create an event handler function for you based on the event you are subscribing to.

Hi,

So I can use like:

      void Adt42To45_FirmwareDownloadProgress(object sender, int value)
        {
             progressBar.Value = value;
        }

Is it correct since I could not the class now for the time being.

Also since my progressbar is in other form such as Form2, how can I access the progress bar
in this Form2. Could you please help since I have  due date on Monday?

Thanks,
JT
