Event Handling With C# - Conclusion
(Page 5 of 5 )

Other popular object oriented languages like Java and Smalltalk do not have the concept of delegates. The delegate is new to C# and it derives its roots from C++ and J++. I hope that this article has helped clear the confusion commonly surrounding delegates for programmers who are just starting out with C# as their first object oriented language.

If you are using the Visual Studio IDE for your C# GUI development, attaching your delegate methods to the events generated by GUI controls (like a mouse click on a button) can be done without writing any code. Still, it is better to know what is going on under the hood just in case you might need it some time.
