DesignerActionService.Clear Method

Releases all components from management and clears all push-model smart tag lists.

Namespace: System.ComponentModel.Design
Assembly: System.Design (in

public void Clear ()
public void Clear ()
public function Clear ()
Not applicable.

The Clear method empties the internal table used to store information about components and their push-model smart tag lists.

Caution noteCaution:

Because this method affects all components managed by the current service, and not just the current component, this method should be used judiciously. Typically, the design-time tool developer uses it when resetting a design surface. Component developers should use one of the Remove methods instead to remove individual smart tag items or lists.

A DesignerActionListsChanged event is raised for each component that was previously managed by the current service.
