First of all credit to the original code goes to it's original developer, Jayesh Jain, who's code I used code I used to model my sample in csharp. My reason for creating this small sample in C# was due to the fact that lots of ppl were looking for info on how to implement delegates using CSharp and the FilesystemWatcher.

This application basically check what modifications happen inside a directory and list the events that are raised by the File System in handling those ocurrences. It shows you how to implement delegates and call the method you wish to send the argumennts too. i.e your function, wich will basically respond with whatever you want it to do when the event is raised.
