How to delete a user function and one more question - Skfir - 09-01-2017 08:41 PM

Hello everybody! I have just gotten my very-first calculator and it is HP Prime. I have been learning how to use it and I created a function, which I don't really need. It is in the toolbox now, but how to delete it?

Is there a way to get an expression into parentheses easily? Because now I need to press the () button at the end of an expression, then delete (, then move cursor to the beginning of the expression, press () again and remove ). So is there a quicker way?

Thank you guys!

One way to delete programs is to use [shift] [1], select the program to delete and touch the [More] soft key. There is a delete option there.

As far as the parenthesis, your method is about as good as it gets.

Hello DrD. Yes, I know how to delete programs. But what I have isn't a program, it is a user-defined function (shift-define). And I don't know how to delete it.

There are three ways - in the choose box in the define interface you can click "BKSP" on the item in the chooser and it will delete it.

You can delete it through the toolbox doing the same thing.

You can delete it using DelHVars("name").

Think you can also delete it through the memory manager.

It's similar. Press Define, Choose, highlight the function you want to delete, and press backspace.

When you select "Define", "choose", highlight the user function you intend to delete, and hit backspace.

Oh no. Joe was ready with his answer 2 minutes ahead of me! And Tim 3 minutes ahead. So forget my reply.
