A CellRange object specifying the cell range to clear.

Parameters

Name Type Description
range CellRange

A CellRange object specifying the cell range to clear.

Remarks

The ClearContents method removes cell data (value and formula) only. Cell formatting and comments remain unchanged. Another way to do this is to assign the CellRange.Value property to null or to CellValue.Empty.

To separately remove cell formatting, hyperlinks, comments or clear a cell range completely, call the Worksheet.ClearFormats, Worksheet.ClearHyperlinks, Worksheet.ClearComments or Worksheet.Clear method, respectively. To delete entire cells from the worksheet, use the Worksheet.DeleteCells method (see the How to: Delete a Cell or Range of Cells example).

To clear cells, you can also use the range's Clear* extension methods, defined by the RangeExtensions class (RangeExtensions.Clear, RangeExtensions.ClearContents, RangeExtensions.ClearFormats, RangeExtensions.ClearHyperlinks and RangeExtensions.ClearComments). These extension methods are accessible as methods of the CellRange object and called by using the instance method syntax.

Examples

This example demonstrates how to clear worksheet cells.

// Remove all cell information (content, formatting, hyperlinks and comments).
worksheet.Clear(worksheet["C2:D2"]);

// Remove cell content.
worksheet.ClearContents(worksheet["C3"]);
worksheet["D3"].Value = null;

// Remove cell formatting.
worksheet.ClearFormats(worksheet["C4"]);
worksheet["D4"].Style = workbook.Styles.DefaultStyle;

// Remove hyperlinks from cells.
worksheet.ClearHyperlinks(worksheet["C5"]);

Hyperlink hyperlinkD5 = worksheet.Hyperlinks.GetHyperlinks(worksheet["D5"])[0];
worksheet.Hyperlinks.Remove(hyperlinkD5);

// Remove comments from cells.
worksheet.ClearComments(worksheet["C6"]);
