Definition

Removes all objects from the Queue.

public:
 virtual void Clear();
public virtual void Clear ();
abstract member Clear : unit -> unit
override this.Clear : unit -> unit
Public Overridable Sub Clear ()

Examples

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

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Collections;
void PrintValues( Queue^ myQ );
int main()
{
   
   // Creates and initializes a new Queue.
   Queue^ myQ = gcnew Queue;
   myQ->Enqueue( "The" );
   myQ->Enqueue( "quick" );
   myQ->Enqueue( "brown" );
   myQ->Enqueue( "fox" );
   myQ->Enqueue( "jumps" );
   
   // Displays the count and values of the Queue.
   Console::WriteLine( "Initially," );
   Console::WriteLine( "   Count    : {0}", myQ->Count );
   Console::Write( "   Values:" );
   PrintValues( myQ );
   
   // Clears the Queue.
   myQ->Clear();
   
   // Displays the count and values of the Queue.
   Console::WriteLine( "After Clear," );
   Console::WriteLine( "   Count    : {0}", myQ->Count );
   Console::Write( "   Values:" );
   PrintValues( myQ );
}

void PrintValues( Queue^ myQ )
{
   IEnumerator^ myEnum = myQ->GetEnumerator();
   while ( myEnum->MoveNext() )
   {
      Object^ myObj = safe_cast<Object^>(myEnum->Current);
      Console::Write( "    {0}", myObj );
   }

   Console::WriteLine();
}

Remarks

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.
