accessing patcher arguments with javascript

December 17, 2006 | 12:44 pm

Hi,

I must be missing something. I can’t find how to access the arguments of a Patcher object in javascript. I would expect the Patcher object to have a method such as getArgs() or a property args, but I can’t find anything like it. There seems to be no real answer to this on the forum either.

Can someone point me in the right direction?

Thanks,
Mattijs

I looked into this the other day, and I don’t think this is currently
possible. Sorry for the bad news.

Workaround?:

Use js to instantiate a patcherargs object, connect its outlets to the js object, send it a bang, deal with the args in js via a list() function, and delete it.

Oi, that’s a pity. I was actually using an external patcherargs, johnpitcairn, but suddenly realised I was probably doing unnessecary work and got onto the forum. Guess I’ll stick with the workaround then.

Thanks all,
