Router Select – newbie question

Is there some way to change the argument on Router or Select? besides typing it directly on the object.

Like some sort of “set” message?

yes – but it only works when route/select do not have any arguments or only one!

while “set 17″ will work for [route 30] it wont work for [route 30 40 50]

if that works with strings is perfect for me :)

Thanks a lot Roman!

Well, I tried and it doesn’t work for me, would you please provide a simple example of that?

ermm .. no max here right now … try making a [select] or [route] with no
arguments – it should have a second inlet now! (when i remeber right?)

my suggestion with “set 17″ might be wrong, i think it is just the second inlet.

Hey Roman,

Select have a second inlet, but it is just for numbers I think.

Router that is the one I need most haven’t a second inlet.

Thanks anyway, I think I can take some advantage of the select object second inlet, and work with numeric ids or something like that, I don’t know for sure, I will try next week.

Best, and thanks again!

oh it might be that it only takes int and no symbols, sorry of that is the case.

you should try making your own abstraction using the [zl] object, then you can
route and select list and symbols forever in the manner you need it.
