How to Map (identify parameters) in Msp

Hi,
I’ve looked up the clic&map tool of Max for live and I don’t find the equivalent in Msp.

I’d like to map an object to a fonction with a simple mouse clic.
With live, they manage to identify every knob with the live.path. I don’t find the equivalent in max object

That’s the max for live patch I checked.

The interesant part is around the “p Map” subpatch.

Thanks !

Pleaaaaase, pleaaaaaase, use “copy compressed”. We can’t do anything with that kind of textfile, plus, it renders the topic unreadable… Anywya, i suspect what you want to do is impossible in Max only.

Hi Guygz,
I am not sure what you are trying to do (Haven’t try M4L), and the patch you posted is not visible (looks like an empty post to me), nut maybe you can check the “hover” object. If you specify a “scripting name” to a UI object, when hovering over it with the mouse, the “hover” returns the scripting name of that object.
In combination with the “mousestate” to report “clicks” you could make a system to report the dial/button/etc being clicked.

you could write your own signal scaling object, it is as simple as this:

The hover object was exactly what I was looking for yes.
In fact I deleted the post with the patch cos I couldn’t compress it at the moment and the thread was effectively unreadable.
Roman, I was not thinking of signal scaling, it is more like object matching. If with hover I can identify en object, with click I can route it to an other one.

Thanks !
