Dict in Java ?

November 29, 2012 | 11:20 pm

Hi !

here http://cycling74.com/docs/max6/dynamic/c74_docs.html#dictionaries is written that :
Support for using Dict objects in mxj mirrors that of the implementation for JavaScript.
well , hummmmm …. has someone luck with it ? I cant find the class object . does this description tells something different ?

Despite the documentation dict is not implemented into Java. I had some correspondence about that with cycling74 about a year ago. Back then there wasn’t a date set when it will be ready.

Thank you for the clarification Jan .

Just stumbled upon this. Either it should be implemented or the documentation should be updated.
Current situation is frustrating :-/

I’ve just started poking around with both JavaScript and Java for extending my Max applications, so sorry if it seems I’m asking the obvious.

The documentation states that [dict] functionality exists equally within [mxj] as it does in [js], but it in fact does not?
Then am I right in understanding that it is not at all possible to access a [dict] from within an [mxj] object?

Correct: at the moment, dictionaries aren’t accessible to mxj.

Damn. Thanks for the clarification.
