Alternative to pvar

March 21, 2008 | 6:16 pm

Hi. I’ve been using pvar to separate the UI from the logic objects. Some of my UI objects have more than one inlet that I need to use. As far as I know pvar can only be made to link to the number of outlets but not inlets. Is there any object I can use to do what I want. Thanks for your help.

I recall that pattrforward will let you "talk" to any inlet, even all
at once.
See the help file.

pvar can link to the leftmost inlet of an object.

Unfortunately, any UI object (like filtergraph) with more than one
inlet, cannot be used with pvar.

That is a current request for Max 5 (I’ll let Stefan rant on this one…)

Hey thanks. That works perfectly. But I still wish pvar could mimic the the number of inputs.
