SortedList.Clear Method ()


The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on to see the new experience.

Removes all elements from a SortedList object.

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

abstract Clear : unit -> unit
override Clear : unit -> unit

Exception Condition

The SortedList object is read-only.


The SortedList has a fixed size.

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

Capacity remains unchanged. To reset the capacity of the SortedList object, call TrimToSize or set the Capacity property directly. Trimming an empty SortedList sets the capacity of the SortedList to the default capacity.

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

The following code example shows how to trim the unused portions of a SortedList object and how to clear the values of the SortedList.
