hints to abstraction inlets/outlets from within parent patch

March 11, 2011 | 4:20 pm

Hi, is it possible to get create a ‘hint’ as to what message an inlet or outlet to an abstraction accepts/gives, from within the parent patch, like in a proper max object? The ‘hint’ object only works if you are inside the abstraction.

you want "comment" field in the inspector…

Ahh, I was actually hoping for a way to get the message included in the menu that comes up when you click on an inlet rather than when you mouse over it; I always disable those assistance bubbles. Looks like this would be the only way though, so I’ll turn em on – thanks!
