Looking for a simple way to Null a type
The type contains arrays of types so looking for one single command that will null/blank it
Tried various different ways but none seem to work

Anyone know ?

There is no null.
But you can set the array lengths to zero.

Thanks BatFink

I'm using

MyVariable.MyArray.length = -1

at the moment, as using 0 will still leave element 0 in the array
It's just i have 5 or 6 type arrays and wanted to clear them all with one command instead of having to do each one.

You could create MyVariable as an array of one element. Then you can...

MyVariable.length = -1

I always leave 1 element in the array, to prevent silly errors on my part. 1 element arrays are more forgiving than zero length arrays.
