Delete all alerts programatically


Refer to http://blogs.msdn.com/dwinter/archive/2005/02/15/373076.aspx for setup if you are not familiar with creating a SharePoint OM application.

This is a simple example of removal of all alerts registered in a site.  This can be handy for testing or mass cleanup. 

private void button1_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{
      
//delete all alerts in entire site
      
using(SPSite mysite = new SPSite(this.textBox1.Text))
      
{
            
foreach (SPWeb myWeb in mysite.AllWebs)
            
{
                  
foreach(SPAlert myAlert in myWeb.Alerts)
                  
{
                        
try
                        
{
                              
myWeb.Alerts.Delete(myAlert.ID);
                        
}
                        
catch (Exception ex)
                        
{
                              
this.textBox2.Text = ex.Message+"\nError deleting "+myAlert.User.LoginName+" Alert:" + myAlert.ListUrl;
                        
}
                  
}
            
}
      }

}

It would be easy to modify this code to clean a single user out of every site if you put an  if  statement such as the following in the last  foreach  loop:
   if (myAlert.User.LoginName == textbox3.Text)
