Currently i am developing a calendar based application from which i am inserting events into the native calendar of HTC HERO (Firmware version: Android 2.1 update 1).

At this point, calendar is full of events so i have tried lot to delete events, but by one by one event it takes long time to delete all events. I have also try to "Remove calendars" and then "Add calendars" shown as below:

enter image description here

This options are showing while clicking on "Press menu button -> More -> Calendars" while watching a calendar view.

One more try i have done, that is, i have also done "Clear data" in "Calendar storage" from "Settings -> Applications -> Manage Applications -> Calendar storage -> clear data". I think this is not deleting events actually as it is showing events inside the calendar same as earlier.

So, how do i delete all the entries from the Calendar?

Since the Calendar App syncs with Google Calendar - why don't you create a "Test" calendar, add events to that calendar and then delete the calendar from a web browser on your computer?

I just did this myself and it worked fine.
