rename obj ?

May 15, 2011 | 5:41 pm

hi: )

Is there a way, perhaps with scripting, to rename an object?

it seems quite a simple thing to do : /

for example: (send hello) to be renamed to (send cat)

(receive) can be renamed via a message prepend with ‘set’ , but (send) cannot be renamed it seems? (udpsend) can be renamed, but this unfortunately is not an option for me. I really need to keep all my sends and receives inside max. and i will nee dto change all the names on occasion and it would be awesome just to send a message to all at the same time.: )

thanks for your help : )

Hi.
the [forward] object is a version of [send] that allows you to change the name.
Also, have a look to [universal].
