Queue.Clear Method

Removes all objects from the Queue.

Namespace:  System.Collections
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

Public Overridable Sub Clear

Count is set to zero, and references to other objects from elements of the collection are also released.

The capacity remains unchanged. To reset the capacity of the Queue, call TrimToSize. Trimming an empty Queue sets the capacity of the Queue to the default capacity.

This method is an O(n) operation, where n is Count.

The following example shows how to clear the values of the Queue.

Public Class SamplesQueue    

    Public Shared Sub Main()

        ' Creates and initializes a new Queue.
        Dim myQ As New Queue()

        ' Displays the count and values of the Queue.
        Console.WriteLine("   Count    : {0}", myQ.Count)
        Console.Write("   Values:")

        ' Clears the Queue.

        ' Displays the count and values of the Queue.
        Console.WriteLine("After Clear,")
        Console.WriteLine("   Count    : {0}", myQ.Count)
        Console.Write("   Values:")
    End Sub
