Default this keyword

I understand the concept of delegates and events, but I guess I'm just a bit foggy on when I should be using the "this" keyword.

I understand that we use this with current object instances but why and how exactly should I use it? Can someone please offer a better explaination? I have followed the examples in the Beginning Visual C# book but am still fuzzy on it. Thanx.

Sincerly,
Raymond Bohnenstiehl

You can use the keyword, when you explicitly want to say that it is the instance in the object that you mean, like in...
Code:
private string variable;
public void someFunction(string variable)
{
    this.variable = variable;
}
(within a class).

Hope it helps.

Jacob.
