How to remove all characters from StringBuilder in C#

StringBuilder.Clear Method is used to remove all the characters from the current StringBuilder instance.

Syntax:

public System.Text.StringBuilder Clear ();

It returns an StringBuilder object whose length will be zero.



Note:

  • Clear is a convenience method that is equivalent to setting the Length property of the current instance to 0 (zero).
  • Calling the Clear method does not modify the current instance’s Capacity or MaxCapacity property.

Example:

filter_none

using System;
using System.Text;
  
class GFG {
  
    // Main Method
    public static void Main(String[] args)
    {
        // Creating a StringBuilder object
        StringBuilder sb1 = new StringBuilder("GeeksforGeeks");
  
        // printing the length of "GeeksforGeeks"
        Console.WriteLine("The String is: {0} \nTotal characters -- {1}",
                                             sb1.ToString(), sb1.Length);
  
        // using the method
        sb1.Clear();
  
        // printing the length of "GeeksforGeeks"
        Console.WriteLine("The String is: {0} \nTotal characters -- {1}",
                                             sb1.ToString(), sb1.Length);
  
        sb1.Append("This  is C# Tutorials.");
  
        // printing the length of "GeeksforGeeks"
        Console.WriteLine("The String is: {0} \nTotal characters -- {1}",
                                             sb1.ToString(), sb1.Length);
    }
}
