I need to delete all the items present in the list view on the click of the "delete all" action button.

enter image description here I am running the script -

foreach($selectedItem in $allData) {    
   $item = Get-Item -Path "master:" -ID $selectedItem.ID
   $item | Remove-Item

But it deletes only the first item in the list. Maybe it is throwing some error in $allData.Remove($selectedItem). When I try to execute it in ISE with test data in $allData, it throws below error:

Exception calling "Remove" with "1" argument(s): "Collection was of a fixed size."

Please suggest how to resolve this?

  • why do you want to remove item from $allData? are you doing anything with it? Oct 15, 2019 at 7:45
  • @MahendraShekhawat Based on previous question at sitecore.stackexchange.com/q/22542/605, it seems that he wants to update the listview Oct 15, 2019 at 8:05
  • @Surya I went on with Mahendra Shekhawat's comment and didn't update $allData. Instead, showed a popup that all the items are deleted and closed the window.

You can try for loop instead of foreach loop if you want to update collection within the loop

Example -

for($index = $allData.Count-1; $index -ge 0; $index--) {
   $item = Get-Item -Path "master:" -ID $allData[$index].ID
   $item | Remove-Item

If $allData is a collection of items then below script is enough to remove items and update $allData collection -

for($index = $allData.Count-1; $index -ge 0; $index--) {
   $allData[$index] | Remove-Item
