How to wipe Tkinter Canvas with Python?

169    Asked by Dannasahi in Python , Asked on Jul 27, 2023

On drawing a shape by the below-mentioned code:

canvas.create_rectangle(10, 10, 50, 50, color= “green”)

Does Tkinter remember that it was made?

I am creating a code having one Frame making few rectangles. Then I draw a black rectangle to erase the screen, and draw few rectangles. I just draw the shape directly in the canvas, so does it stay in memory?

The delete method can be utilized to clear Tkinter canvas with Python.

The method guarantees that memory leaks are evaded and millions of objects are not made. Pass “all” to erase every item in the canvas.

“All” refers to a unique tag depicting the items on the canvas.
The following code will simplify the thing:
#import the tkinter library
From tkinter import *
#create an instance of tkinter frame
Win = Tk()
#set the geometry
#creating a canvas
Mycanvas =canvas(win, bg=”white”, height= 2–, width= 2–)
coordinates= 10, 10, 200, 200
Arc = mycanvas.create_arc(corodinates, start=0, extent=32-, fill=”red”)
#clearing the canvas

This code will erase the canvas.
