How to remove item after collect?

I’m trying to get an Item to disappear after being collected. I’ve tried the following on the Player, Item and Room to no effect:

on collect do
say “A beat up ol’ briefcase stuffed with loose papers.”
briefcase++
fill “white” at 14,9,8,8 //item location
end

I’ve also tried the “draw” function as well instead of “fill” but had the same result.

I’m completely new to all of this. Thanks for your help!

try “swap” instead of fill.

swap "white"

Some additional context:

Drawing functions (like draw and fill can only be called from the player’s draw event handler. In the case of fill “white” is the name of a color but in the case of swap “white” is the name of one of the default tiles.

I read that in the docs, but didn’t quite understand what it meant. Again, new to this stuff. I’ll keep at it though! Thanks for all the great work!
