Problem with pictctrl. Maybe is a bug?

October 23, 2011 | 3:40 pm

i don't know where is the problem.I'm thinking that is a bug, because if i use the matrixctrl it works. if you can see the png it has the not clicked image (yellow knob) and the clicked image (blue knob). But it doesn't work.

Any help?

I have used the beta of MAX MSP 6 and the same error. :(

Nobody knows why???

I’m not sure what you’re trying to achieve, but perhaps you could take off circular tracking and include horizontal/vertical tracking?

So you’re trying to make it yellow until the user clicks/drags it, at which point it will turn bluish-green? Sorry I don’t have much experience with [pictctrl], but try sending the "clickedImage 0" and "clickedImage 1" messages. If that works, perhaps you could hack it into whatever you want.

Yep this is what i want. I dont know why it doesnt work because with the matrixctrl object it does.

How to configure the sending messages? if im moving the dial how to send a message and when the dial stop how to send the other message?

thankssss Spectre for your help!

Look up the [message] object in the help docs, as well as the messages for [pictctrl]
