Quick [live.gain~] question…

June 22, 2012 | 4:22 am

Am I not able to set either the Short Name or Long Name attributes with a msg? I see them in the inspector, but not in the list of msgs/attributes in the reference file. Just want to be sure…

Thanks,
Brian

try dragging them from the inspector into the patcher and see if you get the ‘create message box with…’ pop up.

Interesting, I didn’t know that could be done! I also hadn’t looked at [attrui], so thanks for the tip-off. Unfortunately, neither of the name attributes appeared in [attrui] or were draggable, so it would appear they can’t be changed. Kind of cuts the usefulness to me and seems like an omission, but not sure how involved it would. Oh well, back to comment boxes…

Thanks!
