TreeNodeCollection.Clear Method

Empties the TreeNodeCollection object.

Namespace:  System.Web.UI.WebControls
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

public void Clear()

Use the Clear method to remove every TreeNode object from the TreeNodeCollection.

NoteNote:

To remove an individual node from the collection, use the Remove or RemoveAt method.

The following example demonstrates how to use the Clear method to programmatically empty a TreeNodeCollection. Notice that the Nodes and ChildNodes properties return a TreeNodeCollection object.
