Return Value

A new delegate that invokes the specified script function and returns a value of the specified type.
This function creates a delegate that accepts argCount arguments and returns a value of the specified type. The type of all parameters is Object. Such a delegate is often useful in strongly typed contexts because of contravariance.
The following code demonstrates delegating a callback to a script function. It assumes that an instance of ExtendedHostFunctions is exposed under the name "host" (see AddHostObject).
// create and populate an array of strings
var StringT = host.type("System.String");
var array = host.newArr(StringT, 3);
array.SetValue("first", 0);
array.SetValue("second", 1);
array.SetValue("third", 2);
// import LINQ extensions
var EnumerableT = host.type("System.Linq.Enumerable", "System.Core");
// use LINQ to create an array of modified strings
var selector = host.func(StringT, 1, function (value) { return value.toUpperCase(); });
array = array.Select(selector).ToArray();
