Python Simple turtle graphic programme, what's wrong?

  1. Nov 19, 2016 #1
    I want to write a program when I click the turtle, the turtle would disappear.
    However, the program does not gave error message but when I click the turtle, there is no effect on it.
    What's wrong with it?
    How can I fix it?
    Mod note: Added code tags.
    My written programme:
    Code (Python):

    import turtle
    import pygame

    def hide():

    Please use code tags, especially with Python code!
    They look like this
    <your code>
    I don't know anything about turtle graphics in Python, but I suspect if you want to hide the turtle, you first have to make it appear.Have you looked at any documentation for turtle graphics in Python? I did a web search for "python turtle" and found this as the first link: https://docs.python.org/2/library/turtle.html

    According to the documentation the function which is given as argument to onclick should take two arguments representing the coordinates.

    There is already one turtle when import turtle. I don't think it is a problem if I do not create one more...

    Do you mean I should add a line like "x,y = turtle.pos()"? But I thought "turtle.onclick()" is meaning to click the turtle...

    No, you don't need. But, your function hide should take to parameters (the coordinates). However, You don't need to do something with these parameters inside the function.

    Code (Python):

    import turtle
    import pygame
    def hide(x,y):    
    Do you mean like this?

    Do you have any more code than what you show in this thread?

    All you're doing in the code here is hiding the turtle. Have you looked at the documentation for turtle graphics? If not, follow this link: https://docs.python.org/3/library/frameworks.html
