turtle.clearstamp() method in Python

  • Last Updated : 21 Jul, 2020

The turtle module provides turtle graphics primitives, in both object-oriented and procedure-oriented ways. Because it uses Tkinter for the underlying graphics, it needs a version of Python installed with Tk support.

turtle.clearstamp()

The turtle.clearstamp() method is used to delete all or first/last n of turtle’s stamps. This method requires an argument of an integer. So, the stamp made with an id is cleared by it.

Syntax : turtle.clearstamp(stampid)



Parameter: 

stampid – an integer, must be return value of previous stamp() call.

Below is the implementation of the above method with some examples :

Example 1 :

Python3




# import package
import turtle
  
  
# set turtle speed to slowest
# for better understandings
turtle.speed(1)
  
# motion with stamps
# and their ids
turtle.forward(50)
id1 = turtle.stamp()
  
turtle.forward(50)
id2 = turtle.stamp()
  
turtle.forward(50)
id3 = turtle.stamp()
  
# hide the turtle to
# clarify stamps
turtle.ht()
  
# clear the stamps
# of id : id1 and id3
turtle.clearstamp(id1)
turtle.clearstamp(id3)

Output :

Example 2 :

Python3




# import package
import turtle 
  
# list to store ids
ids = []
  
# loop to create motion
# with stamps
for i in range(12):
      
    # motion
    turtle.forward(50)
      
    # stampid
    id = turtle.stamp()
    lst.append(id)
    turtle.right(30)
  
# hide the turtle for 
# better understandings
turtle.ht()
  
# loop for clear stamps with 
# their ids using clearstamp
# half stamps are cleared
for i in range(len(lst)//2):
    turtle.clearstamp(lst[i])

Output :
