Pattr Question – how do you find which one has failed to bind?

Is there a simple way to know which pattr object has failed to bind to it’s target? I’ve got tons of them and can figure out which one is failing.

thanks for any help.

I would love to know this as well. It is so annoying that
pattr does not print the name of the control that it can not
bind to. The easiest way I can think of is open the patcher as
a text file and find matching pairs of “bindto” and “newobj”
statements.

Recent versions of pattr print out both the name of the pattr and the
name of the target which couldn’t be bound to. What other information
do you need?

Oh boy how I’d -love- to be able to click an error in the max window and jump to the object that printed it..

This issue isn’t pattr specific. I’d really like to see some debuggiing
enhancements for Max 5. For example a way to localise an object which
spits out an error message…

At the moment the only way to find out is to “unpatch” the patch bit by
bit, till it stops doing it…

In smaller patches trace could help…

I second that, might make it to the most demanded feature request for Max 5!

Of course the object which sent the message. But as there is no aid yet
to find out where this object is placed, we probably have to wait for
Max 5…

Oh yeah! And for the grab object!
Oh yeah and the multi-level find and replace function that also searches locked patchers.
Oh yeah and the multiple undo’s.
And..
And..

That’s why I’d really love C74 to be the first company with an online registered feature requests log. I have tons of these improvements that I would submit if I wouldn’t assume that they are already on a list somewhere. I hate annoying hardworking developers with info they already have.

But what if one of my idea’s is not on this list and it happens to be a prize-winning upgrade idea that I am willing to submit to cycling for free? Like the idea of an online registered feature requests log ;)
