Event sink

Sink (computing)

In computing, a sink or event sink is a class or function designed to receive incoming events from another object or function. This is commonly implemented in C++ as callbacks. Object-oriented languages, such as Java and C#, have built-in support for sinks by allowing events to be fired to delegate functions.
