SortedSet class represents the collection of objects in sorted order. This class comes under the System.Collections.Generic namespace. SortedSet<T>.Clear Method is used to remove the all elements from the SortedSet. Properties:
  • In C#, SortedSet class can be used to store, remove or view elements.
  • It maintains ascending order and does not store duplicate elements.
  • It is suggested to use SortedSet class if you have to store unique elements and maintain ascending order.
Syntax:
mySortedSet.Clear();
Here, mySortedSet is the name of the SortedSet. Below given are some examples to understand the implementation in a better way: Example 1:
// C# code to remove all the elements
// from SortedSet
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
  
class GFG {
  
    // Driver code
    public static void Main()
    {
  
        // Creating a SortedSet of strings
        SortedSet<string> mySortedSet = new SortedSet<string>();
  
        // adding elements in mySortedSet
        mySortedSet.Add("A");
        mySortedSet.Add("B");
        mySortedSet.Add("C");
        mySortedSet.Add("D");
        mySortedSet.Add("E");
  
        // Displaying number of elements in mySortedSet
        // before Removing all the elements
        Console.WriteLine("Number of elements in mySortedSet are : " 
                                               + mySortedSet.Count);
  
        // Displaying the element in mySortedSet
        foreach(string str in mySortedSet)
        {
            Console.WriteLine(str);
        }
  
        // Removing all the elements from mySortedSet
        mySortedSet.Clear();
  
        // Displaying number of elements in mySortedSet
        // after Removing all the elements
        Console.WriteLine("Number of elements in mySortedSet are : " 
                                               + mySortedSet.Count);
    }
}

                    
Output:
Number of elements in mySortedSet are : 5
A
B
C
D
E
Number of elements in mySortedSet are : 0
Example 2:
// C# code to remove all the elements
// from SortedSet
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
  
class GFG {
  
    // Driver code
    public static void Main()
    {
  
        // Creating a SortedSet of integers
        SortedSet<int> mySortedSet = new SortedSet<int>();
  
        // adding elements in mySortedSet
        for (int i = 1; i <= 6; i++) {
            mySortedSet.Add(2 * i + 1);
        }
  
        // Displaying number of elements in mySortedSet
        // before Removing all the elements
        Console.WriteLine("Number of elements in mySortedSet are : " 
                                               + mySortedSet.Count);
  
        // Displaying the element in mySortedSet
        foreach(int i in mySortedSet)
        {
            Console.WriteLine(i);
        }
  
        // Removing all the elements from mySortedSet
        mySortedSet.Clear();
  
        // Displaying number of elements in mySortedSet
        // after Removing all the elements
        Console.WriteLine("Number of elements in mySortedSet are : "
                                               + mySortedSet.Count);
    }
}

                    
Output:
Number of elements in mySortedSet are : 6
3
5
7
9
11
13
Number of elements in mySortedSet are : 0
