Action<T1, T2, T3, T4, T5, T6, T7, T8> Delegate

Updated: October 2010

Encapsulates a method that has eight parameters and does not return a value.

Namespace:  System
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
public delegate void Action<in T1, in T2, in T3, in T4, in T5, in T6, in T7, in T8>(
	T1 arg1,
	T2 arg2,
	T3 arg3,
	T4 arg4,
	T5 arg5,
	T6 arg6,
	T7 arg7,
	T8 arg8
)

Type Parameters

in T1

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.

in T2

The type of the second parameter of the method that this delegate encapsulates.

in T3

The type of the third parameter of the method that this delegate encapsulates.

in T4

The type of the fourth parameter of the method that this delegate encapsulates.

in T5

The type of the fifth parameter of the method that this delegate encapsulates.

in T6

The type of the sixth parameter of the method that this delegate encapsulates.

in T7

The type of the seventh parameter of the method that this delegate encapsulates.

in T8

The type of the eighth 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.
arg8
Type: T8
The eighth parameter of the method that this delegate encapsulates.

You can use the Action<T1, T2, T3, T4, T5, T6, T7, T8> 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 eight 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 SubEnd 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 eight parameters and returns a value, use the generic Func<T1, T2, T3, T4, T5, T6, T7, T8, TResult> delegate instead.

You can also use the Action<T1, T2, T3, T4, T5, T6, T7, T8> delegate with anonymous methods and lambda expressions.
