SVGPointList.clear()

The clear() method of the SVGPointList interface removes all items from the list.

Syntax

clear()

Parameters

None.

Return value

None (undefined).

Exceptions

NoModificationAllowedError DOMException

Thrown if the list is read-only.

Examples

The following example shows an SVG which contains a <polyline> with five coordinate pairs. Calling clear() empties the list. Therefore the polyline no longer displays in the SVG.

<svg id="svg" viewBox="-10 -10 120 120" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg">
  <polyline id="example" stroke="black" fill="none"
   points="50,0 21,90 98,35 2,35 79,90"/>
let example = document.getElementById("example");
example.points.clear();
