I got rid of the quotes, still wondering how to set a message box’s contents on creation.

Please post an example of what you’re currently doing.

Try something like these examples, the first one is like sending a message to [thispatcher] and the other uses newdefault

var myobj = this.patcher.message(“script”,”newobject”,”message”,”@text”,”hello”);
var myobj = this.patcher.newdefault(300,400,”message”,”@text”,”hello”);

I’m having a hard time figuring out how do make messages like “rate $1″.

Obviously, these don’t work for me:

function makemess(){
var mess1 = this.patcher.newdefault(50,150,”message”, “@text”, “rate $1″);
var mess1 = this.patcher.newdefault(50,200,”message”, “@text”, “rate”, “$1″);

Help will be appreciated.

var myobj = this.patcher.message(“script”, “newobject”, “message”, “@text”, “rate $1″); should work for you.

Yes, it does, thank you. Wonder why the newdefault method doesn’t work like this, though. I know I had it working that way also, at one point, but then I broke it when I rewrote some code yesterday.

@lut lei I had that problem with new default too. Thanks lh

I guess using newdefault have few advantages over newobject, when it comes to messageboxes, anyway.
