Send a list to a named bpatcher

February 3, 2008 | 4:27 pm

Hi list,

I am stuck with a seemingly simple problem, which isn’t explained
clearly enough in archives/docs/examples for me.

I want to send a list to a named bpatcher in my patch.
How do I have to notate it. I tried the following:

var Editor = this.patcher.getnamed("Editor");

function list()
{
var a = arrayfromargs(arguments);
Editor.message("list",a);
}

Throws a "patcher doesn’t understand "list"" error in the Max window

I guess its talking to the bpatcher object instead of my patcher loaded
into the bpatcher. How do I access my bpatcher correctly?

Stefan

Did you ever figure this out? I don’t see a way either.

I remember a recent forum thread where someone else was complaining they couldn’t script a bpatcher properly. Maybe this isn’t supported in Max 4?

I’d work around it by adding another named object that can be scripted properly, and connect that to the bpatcher.
