Problem with pictctrl

April 12, 2008 | 4:04 am

I read this manual part and the help files several times and managed to make toggle buttons but can’t get the dial working:

I have a 4-step knob that should work as a dial. Two rows of images. The first row contains the pictures for the 4 steps, the second row is a clone of the first row (I don’t need a "clicked" state).

I think I tried all possible settings in the Inspector but I get two picures in Max, always the first column. The dial function works, I have two moving knobs. But I would prefer to see only one ;-)

Where is the failure?

Ok, I do not understand it but got it working with only one row. The help says there can be more pictures for a dial but however, I have no mask so I am happy with one row.

You simply need as many rows as you define views. If there is no clicked
image, there must not be a row for it…
(If you take your old version and check clicked images it should show
correctly as well…)

Its all explained in the subpatcher "pictureFormats" in the help file…

Yes, not sure what I did wrong. Works now with as many images as I want.

Well, if you know how it works then it is well explained ;-)
Steep learning curve, you know …
