Delete PFQuery

I have a PFQuery defined in my project. I want to delete it after a certain time. HOw do I go about doing this without having to do it manually? Something like [query delete]; but I don't see any method like that in the documentation.

Any thoughts, Amit Bijlani Ben Jakuben

I'm really not sure what you mean by "I want to delete it after a certain time". Delete the object? the results?

Is it the objects returned by the query that you want to delete? If so, you'll need to use those (maybe objectId) to perform delete operations.

This is just a guess, but I would think something like this may do the trick: query = nil;
