Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
The default implementation of this method is intended to be overridden by a derived class to perform some action before the collection is cleared.
If the process fails, the collection reverts back to its previous state.
The default implementation of this method is an O(1) operation.Notes to Implementers: This method allows implementers to define processes that must be performed before deleting all the elements from the underlying System.Collections.ArrayList. By defining this method, implementers can add functionality to inherited methods without having to override all other methods. OnClear is invoked before the standard Clear behavior, whereas OnClearComplete is invoked after the standard Clear behavior. For example, implementers can exempt certain elements from deletion by a global Clear.
