Setting the range of live.numbox


as the title says: how can I modify the range of a live.numbox? I understand that I can do so from the Inspector, but I need to change these values according to some user input.

My patch has nothing to do with M4L, I just wanted to use the live.numbox because of the possibility of adding a unit to the number, but it seems that it ignores the ‘min’ and ‘max’ messages accepted by the normal numbox object.

Any help is appreciated,

The range of live.* GUI objects cannot be changed dynamically with messages. I think the reason is that automation mapping/scaling in M4L would be confused by such changes.

thanks. In the meantime, I made an ‘emulated’ solution for myself to the problem:

– Pasted Max Patch, click to expand. –

However, it would be so much nicer if this simple feature would be part of that beautiful numbox… :-(

Thanks anyway,
