|Home GeoPack GeoDB Methods DeleteData|
|See also: GarbageCollection|
The method DeleteData deletes the database entry DBEntry. DBEntry may take values between 1 and NumEntries. If DBEntry is not within this range, DeleteData is not executed at all.
For performance reasons DeleteData does not delete any associated BLOBs, it simply marks the BLOB as deleted. Thus deleting data may not reduce the size of a database by the expected value. If you want to get rid of any excess data which are no longer needed you should call the GarbageCollection routine.
