Hello, How do I clear a certain element in an array.

E.g.

      Dim myIntArray(1, 2) As String

        myIntArray(0, 0) = "One"
        myIntArray(0, 1) = "Two"
        myIntArray(0, 2) = "Three"
        myIntArray(1, 0) = "One One"
        myIntArray(1, 1) = "Two Two"
        myIntArray(1, 2) = "Three Three"


I want to clear the element where the text says "Two Two".

        Array.Clear(myIntArray, x, y)

What will x and y be and why..?

Thanks

myIntArray.Clear(myIntArray, 4, 1)

its element index 4, zero based, so its the fifth element

y = 1 becuase its the length of how many to clear

if y = 2 then both (1, 1) and (1, 2) would clear
