if I had a text box named txtAnswer I could clear it with txtAnswer.Clear() or txtAnswer.Text = String.Empty()  Using the Clear() method would keep this statement shorter.  Is there any other reason why you would chose one method over the other?

Hi  M1Bill72,

 I would choose the TextBox.Clear() method, because it is logically better to clear a value, rather than re-assigning it with another value. But I wanted to do a little test...

Nice to see my article in a solution!
In short: if you only need to clear text, then the best is to assign String.Empty.

Regards.
