Unraveling Functions and Methods in C#

Functions and methods are fundamental to structuring code in C#. They encapsulate blocks of code that perform specific tasks and can be called upon when needed. In this post, we’ll explore the different forms of functions and methods in C#.

Function Declaration and Expression:

A function in C# can be declared using the void keyword for methods that don’t return a value. Here’s an example:

void SayHello()
    Console.WriteLine("Hello, World!");

// Calling the function

Parameters and Return Values:

Functions can take parameters and return values, allowing for more flexibility. Here’s an example of a function that calculates the sum of two numbers:

int Add(int a, int b)
    return a + b;

// Calling the function with arguments
int result = Add(3, 7);
Console.WriteLine($"Sum: {result}");

Arrow Functions (Lambda Expressions):

C# supports arrow functions, also known as lambda expressions, for concise function expressions. Here’s an example:

Func<int, int, int> Multiply = (x, y) => x * y;

// Calling the lambda function
int product = Multiply(4, 5);
Console.WriteLine($"Product: {product}");

Scope and Closures:

Understanding the scope of variables and closures is crucial when working with functions. Here’s a brief example:

int globalVariable = 10;

void DisplayGlobal()
    Console.WriteLine($"Global Variable: {globalVariable}");

// Calling the function


Functions and methods form the building blocks of C# programs. They promote code reusability and maintainability. In the next post, we’ll explore the concise syntax of arrow functions in C#.
