Moq can be used to create fake delegates. Mocks faking delegates can be configured like normal methods to return a value, execute a callback or throw an exception.

The snippets below are based on the following type

public delegate int ParseString(string value);

Moq can fake explicit delegates by simply passing their type to the constructor.

var mock = new Mock<ParseString>();

Alternatively, Moq supports delegates based on Func and Action.

var mock = new Mock<Func<string, int>>();

It is possible to configure the delegates as if they were normal methods.

mock.Setup(p => p(It.IsAny<string>()))

Finally, Moq can generate implicit mocks for delegates too.

var parser = Mock.Of<ParseString>();

var func = Mock.Of<Func<string, int>>();
