Example

1) Let's say we have a subform field named "Items". We need to be able to delete the subform rows by checking the Decision box field type "Clear rows". The following snippet (written in the On User Input section of the Decision box field ) can be used in this scenario:

input.Items.clear();
 

2) This task can be used to clear subform rows in fetched records. Let's say we have an Employees form with "Job Experience" subform field and "Date" field.The following snippet can be used to delete the subform rows in records which have the current date value in the Date field:

​fetchedRecords = Employees [ Date == today ];
for each rec in fetchedRecords 
{
rec.Job_Experience.clear();
}
