Deletes the specified object types from the table.
The parameter Types is a bit mask. The content types and the fore- and background flags can be combined with a binary or operator. If the foreground and background flags are both absent, then nothing will be deleted!

Other programming languages require no type cast.
Note that it is not required to explicitely clear the contents of a table. Existing contents can be overriden at any time. However, when it is not known whether all cells get new values, then it is recommended to clear the table beforehand.
It is also possible to clear the contents of specific rows or columns only. See DynaPDF.Table.ClearColumn and DynaPDF.Table.ClearRow for further information.
