    [RESOLVED] Delegates: A simple question

    Hi Forum members,

    I have been refreshing my understanding of Delegates, and I have a very simple question concerning the terminology. My source of information is from the excellent book, "Pro C# 2008 and the .NET 3.5 Platform" (would highly recommend).

    While I understand the Delegate/Event model, I'm slightly confused over the terms 'caller' and 'listener'. My present understanding is that the 'caller' is the object who will assign one of it's methods to the Delegate type. And 'listener' is the aforementioned method that will be invoked when the event is fired by the Delegate; 'listener' being the 'event handler'.

    Or am I misunderstanding the terminology?

    Many thanks in advance.
