request for some inputs…

April 5, 2006 | 10:53 am

As on this list recently there was a mention of an upcoming version 5 of
Max I’d want to place a feature request:
A good portion of my patches do need the construction -> [prepend set]
to give a visual feedback of values. Most of these UI objects which are
usually involved have only one input.
This would lead to an obvious enhancement to all of these objects:
add a second inlet which would set the value without triggering output.

Man would that declutter my patchers… (And it would force anybody who
uses my collection to get an upgrade (to add a fashionable fundraising
argument) ;-)

The following objects would benefit from this convenient enhancement:

message,
number,
flonum,
toggle,
dial,
vslider,
hslider,
LED,
umenu,
ubumenu…

Its maybe easy enough to implement, to even include it into a
maintenance update… (Which would render the fashionable argument
useless, but would make a lot of Maxers happy… ;-)

That’s a great idea! I really agree with you, Stephen… I would love it
too.
