The concept of "delete" doesn't exist for most display types, because they're visualizing the state of a continuous stream of data. Most display types do have a history or buffer size, which indicates how many messages to keep and display; perhaps you can adjust this value?

If you're explicitly trying to present a user interface in rviz, you should probably be using markers or interactive markers, which give you more control.
