How to clear texture of sprite

I can use set_texture() to set the texture to another image, but how do I get rid of the texture? Should I just be hiding the sprite instead when I don’t want to see it?

To remove the texture:

$Sprite.texture = null



If you are sure that you don’t need the sprite anymore you should use queue_free() to delete it, otherwise hide it.

But if you want to use the sprite again later with another texture, just remove the texture.

Neither $Sprite.texture = null nor $Sprite.set_texture(null) seem to be working for me (When I replace the line with $Sprite.hide() it does hide the sprite, so I guess it is getting the sprite node correctly).

Edit: Nevermind, it works, I just forgot to clear a variable.
