//I mistakenly put this post into the ALL area,
Iâ€™m trying to use a JS object and a thispatcher object to control all the objects in a patch. All objects in the patch have a scripting name.
1. Iâ€™m looking for a JS utility script which can report back all the objects in a patcher and subpatchers. This is for the purpose of learning exactly how to address all objects from a JS object, without the use of any patchcords.
I found something called printobj, but I believe itâ€™s incomplete.
2. Iâ€™m also looking for another utility JS example script which can show me how to output the data type that a selection of objects needs :
Matrixctrl, message, number, textedit, pattr, pattrstorage, preset, js, etc.
It is my belief that with these utilities, it is much easier to understand how to successfully use JS with Max.
Does no one use such things ? I have been making quite an exhaustive search, but come up with little info.
Iâ€™ve used things like :
var p = this.patcher;
Iâ€™ve had trouble with various objects and data types, but I know there are experts among us. Could someone please share this invaluable information ?
