Extracting the state of a toggle in JavaScript

Is there a message that can be sent to a Javascript-created toggle to learn its current state (which may have been altered by the user)?

TiA,
Eric

Assuming that you have a toggle somewhere in the patcher named “yoyo”. You can use the pattr system to get it’s value using getvalueof.


function bang()
{
var toggle = this.patcher.getnamed("yoyo");
outlet(0, toggle.getvalueof());
}

the current version is attached.

yet super simple, build a grid of toggles than outputs bang when the playhead passes by a toggle set to ON.

need to improve it a bit to be really useful, but the main concept and code is pretty much there.

any feedbacks, suggestions, improvements, are more than welcome.

peace
