The below code is part of a loop that successfully populates xApplicationLog

The question is how do I empty the contents of xApplicationLog prior to this loop running?



                            Dim xLOG As New XElement("LOGs")
                            xLOG.Add(New XElement("InstanceID", objEntry.InstanceId.ToString))
                            xLOG.Add(New XElement("ErrorTime", CDate(objEntry.TimeGenerated.ToString)))
                            xLOG.Add(New XElement("ErrorSource", objEntry.Source.ToString))
                            xLOG.Add(New XElement("ErrorMessage", objEntry.Message.ToString))
                            xApplicationLog.Add(xLOG)

Assuming xApplicationLog is an XElement object then you can call the RemoveNodes() method to clear any child nodes:
xApplicationLog.RemoveNodes()

'// rest of your code

...Assuming xApplicationLog is an XElement object

below is the creation of xApplicationLog, so I assume that makes it an XElement?

   Public xApplicationLog As New XElement("ApplicationLog")
