What are conduct crimes and result crimes?

A conduct crime is where the conduct used is the offence, and there is no no required result element. For example theft, the conduct of taking somone elses possession is the theft, there is no required result such as the person realising etc. 

A result crime is a crime which has a result element and is where a required result must happen for the offence to be committed. An example is murder, if you attempt to murder but the person does not die then you cannot be liable for murder, of course you would be liable for other offences but since the other people did not die (the required result) there is no murder.
