Patcher not reporting in getinfo list when renamed.

June 12, 2006 | 8:15 pm

Friends,

Sorry for the reposts, and I don’t mean to be annoying about this; but
again, I don’t want this to be lost in the list under a huge pile of
"n00bs suck", and I haven’t heard anything. Just looking for
acknowledgment by whomever writes these things down.

The issue:

I am trying to report the names of all subpatchers used in an extensive
patch. Some of these subpatchers are renamed dynamically by an
argument to [thispatcher]. These patches do not report in the list;
additionally, they cannot be opened for editing within Max, they must be
opened from the finder.

Max 4.5.7, Mac OS 10.4.6

Reproduction:

=========
Main.pat
=========

max v2;
#N vpatcher 450 576 653 704;
#P window setfont "Sans Serif" 9.;
#P window linecount 1;
#P newex 11 36 97 196617 SubPatch NewName;
#P pop;

=========
SubPatch.pat
=========
max v2;
#N vpatcher 105 165 705 565;
#P origin 0 118;
#P window setfont "Sans Serif" 9.;
#P window linecount 1;
#P message 8 51 293 196617 patcher $1;
#P newex 8 29 45 196617 loadbang;
#N thispatcher;
#Q end;
#P newobj 8 71 59 196617 thispatcher;
#P connect 1 0 2 0;
#P connect 2 0 0 0;
#P pop;

=========

Thank you very much for your time and consideration.
