I am learning C# and I am having trouble with one of the assignments. I would appreciate it if someone could give me some feedback and a tutorial if possible. I understand the concept of delegates...i think, but I am not sure what my assignment is asking for.

Here is the sample code we are given:

public interface Robot


public void moveForward();

public void turn(float degrees);


class RobotImpl : Robot {

float xpos, ypos;

float xvel, yvel;

public void moveForward() {

xpos += xvel; ypos += yvel;


public void turn(float degrees) {

float speed = 25, heading = 10;

heading += degrees;

xvel = 15; yvel = 15;



//hard coded option:
Robot r = new RobotImpl();

//Using a factory Method:
Robot r = Factory.newRobot();

Our task is to:
Write the delegate type for the newRobot() method. Create the Factory class and
add a readonly field of that delegate type. Create a SimulationDriver class with a Main
method that calls this factory method and stores the resulting Robot object.

So to create the delegate type it has to be the same return type as the newRobot method, but i dont see any return type for the Robot object. But i was thinking it would be something like:

public delegate void newRobot();?

I am completely lost about what to do about the Factory class...

but I know it has to contain some code similar to:

public class Factory{

private readonly delegate void newRobot(); (not sure about this)


I need any help possible, I have midterms in a week and I want to be able to code this!

Thanks :)
