The Delete Band command as seen in the Foldit GUI recipe editor.

Delete Band is a command used in GUI recipes in Foldit. It appears as "Delete Band" in the list of commands, then as "Remove" when selected.

As the name suggests, Delete Band deletes one or more bands.

Delete Band uses one ingredient, bands.

The bands ingredient can be specified in three ways:

  • All
  • Connected
  • User Pick

Using "all" for the bands ingredient causes all bands to be deleted.

The "connected" option for the bands ingredient deletes only bands which connect two segments. This is the only type of band which can be created in a GUI recipe. It's also possible to create spacebands, which start on a segment, but end on a point in space. Spacebands can be created manually, or by using a Lua recipe.

Note: in a recent release, 20201120-8f78be34c4-win_x86-devprev, the "connected" option seems to delete only spacebands. This seems to be the opposite of the intended effect.

The "user pick" option for the bands ingredient means the user is prompted to pick bands by clicking on them when the recipe reaches the command. It's similar to the user pick option for the segments ingredients in other GUI recipes. The user pick option in GUI recipe does not have an equivalent anywhere else in Foldit. See user pick for more on this option.

The Delete Band command is similar to deleting bands manually in the original or selection interfaces. The equivalent Lua commands are band.Delete or band.DeleteAll.
