Type Parameters

  • inT1
    The type of the first parameter of the method that this delegate encapsulates.

    This type parameter is contravariant. That is, you can use either the type you specified or any type that is less derived. For more information about covariance and contravariance, see 2678dc63-c7f9-4590-9ddc-0a4df684d42e.

  • inT2
    The type of the second parameter of the method that this delegate encapsulates.
  • inT3
    The type of the third parameter of the method that this delegate encapsulates.
  • inT4
    The type of the fourth parameter of the method that this delegate encapsulates.
  • inT5
    The type of the fifth parameter of the method that this delegate encapsulates.
  • inT6
    The type of the sixth parameter of the method that this delegate encapsulates.
  • inT7
    The type of the seventh parameter of the method that this delegate encapsulates.

Parameters

  • arg1
    Type: T1
    The first parameter of the method that this delegate encapsulates.
  • arg2
    Type: T2
    The second parameter of the method that this delegate encapsulates.
  • arg3
    Type: T3
    The third parameter of the method that this delegate encapsulates.
  • arg4
    Type: T4
    The fourth parameter of the method that this delegate encapsulates.
  • arg5
    Type: T5
    The fifth parameter of the method that this delegate encapsulates.
  • arg6
    Type: T6
    The sixth parameter of the method that this delegate encapsulates.
  • arg7
    Type: T7
    The seventh parameter of the method that this delegate encapsulates.

Remarks

You can use the Action<T1, T2, T3, T4, T5, T6, T7> delegate to pass a method as a parameter without explicitly declaring a custom delegate. The encapsulated method must correspond to the method signature that is defined by this delegate. This means that the encapsulated method must have seven parameters that are all passed to it by value, and it must not return a value. (In C#, the method must return void. In Visual Basic, it must be defined by the Sub…End Sub construct. It can also be a method that returns a value that is ignored.) Typically, such a method is used to perform an operation.

NoteNote:

To reference a method that has seven parameters and returns a value, use the generic Func<T1, T2, T3, T4, T5, T6, T7, TResult> delegate instead.

You can also use the Action<T1, T2, T3, T4, T5, T6, T7> delegate with anonymous methods and lambda expressions.
