Folder: listing content of subfolders in umenu?

August 29, 2008 | 6:28 pm

I tried to say most of what I am asking in the title, but here we go.

I have a folder object going into a umenu, listing all the VST plug-ins in that particular folder. However, some plug-ins have their own folder, and it seems "folder" is only listing the contents of the specified folder, not its subfolders.

So, how can I get the content of the subfolders merged into the umenu object? Is there a way to get folder to list subfolders that I don’t know about?

I believe the "depth $1" message is what you are looking for. Here is the help file for it:

– Pasted Max Patch, click to expand. –

Hope that’s what you were looking for.

Thanks for the "depth" suggestion.

Tried it with umenu with my current patch (folder object going into umenu), but couldn’t make that work. Used the suggestion in the help file, and it works.
