DataSet.Clear Method ()

 

Clears the DataSet of any data by removing all rows in all tables.

Namespace:   System.Data
Assembly:  System.Data (in System.Data.dll)

Public Sub Clear

If the DataSet is bound to an XmlDataDocument, calling DataSet.Clear or DataTable.Clear raises the NotSupportedException. To avoid this situation, traverse each table, removing each row one at a time.

The following example clears the DataSet of all rows in all tables.

Private Sub ClearDataSet(ByVal dataSet As DataSet)
    ' To test, print the number rows in each table.
    Dim table As DataTable
    For Each table In dataSet.Tables
        Console.WriteLine(table.TableName & "Rows.Count = " _
            & table.Rows.Count.ToString())
    Next

    ' Clear all rows of each table.
    dataSet.Clear()

    ' Print the number of rows again.
    For Each table In dataSet.Tables
        Console.WriteLine(table.TableName & "Rows.Count = " _
            & table.Rows.Count.ToString())
    Next 
End Sub
