Changing bpatcher argument

August 11, 2011 | 12:32 pm

Hi,

i need to have a bpatcher with a dynamic argument, how do i change the argument value externally? (this is the #1 inside the bpatcher, and the argument value in the inspector of bpatcher)

Should be easy, maybe i’m missing something here…but i can not change it.

thanks

I don’t think you can, not sure. use send/receive instead, or inlets?

Yes you can :
name your bpatcher
talk to the named bpatcher via a thispatcher object outside your bpatcher
with your arguments in a script sendbox (message box)
you can have up to 8 arguments i think

script sendbox mybpatcher args cat cow frog
I
thispatcher

hope it helps
