how to query a named numberbox via pattr system ?

October 3, 2013 | 8:11 pm

hi

i have a named numberbox in an abstract which is exposed with autopattr to pattstorage, pattrforward etc.
so i use my midi controller with pattrforward ("pattrforward fx.wake::wakeBlur") to change its value and pattrstrorage to save and recall its value.
to bad i cant query its value with pattrforward :-(
so i could easily alter it by querying its value, modify the value and send it back via pattrforward.
i there a simple way to query the value ? something like pattrget ?

ok now i see with a "getfx.wake::wakeFeedb" message send to pattrstorage i can get the value.
but its a bit clumsy if i have to query all my object like that.
any other methods ? i guess bindto parent wont work with a named number box ?
