The clear() method is used to remove all the elements from a SortedSet. Using the clear() method only clears all the element from the set and not deletes the set. In other words, we can say that the clear() method is used to only empty an existing Set.


void clear()

Parameters: The method does not take any parameter

Return Value: The method does not returns any value.

Note: The clear() method in SortedSet is inherited from the Set interface in Java.

Below program illustrate the Java.util.Set.clear() method:

// Java code to illustrate clear()
import java.util.*;
public class SetDemo {
    public static void main(String args[])
        // Creating an empty Set
        SortedSet<String> st
            = new TreeSet<String>();
        // Use add() method to
        // add elements into the Set
        // Displaying the Set
        System.out.println("Initial Set: " + st);
        // Clearing the Set using clear() method
        // Displaying the final Set after clearing;
        System.out.println("The final set: " + st);


Initial Set: [4, Geeks, To, Welcome]
