I don’t know if the launchpad is similar enough ( I assume that it is ), but you can check out this patch and modify it to your needs:

Some weeks ago I wrote a wrapper for the Novation Launchpad. It’s in this .ZIP, together with a .amxd demo device that uses it. The demo just cycles through 8 colors for all buttons and shows some general commands. If you open de .amxd for editing and then go from presentation mode to patching mode there will be a big bpatcher in the center: that is the interface.
