recognizing autopattr data at the ui object

March 11, 2013 | 5:56 pm

Say I have some pattrstorage presets, an autopattr, and umenu. Is it possible to tell when the umenu changes whether it was restored by pattrstorage or bu user input?

The only thing I could think of was cover the pattrstorage with a ubutton and increment the menu vanue with a counter, but that seems ugly.

Many thanks in advance

There’s no way to know this from Max. But maybe you’re trying to solve the wrong problem — why do you want to know whether the change on the umenu came from the user or not?

Best, Jeremy

I want to store the umenu whenever it changes, but that means that when it recalled it is automatically stored which causes instability.

Thanks again

Joe
