strange pattr behaviour after update to Max 5.1.5

Hello everybody,

I have a working patch in Max 5.1.4. (OSX)
When trying to run the same file on Max 5.1.5 pattr notes something like:
pattr: bufferfield can’t bindto buffer-field.

The same patch works as said without any problem in 5.1.3

We discovered that we couldn’t create a bindto to any messagebox. Binding to a number is no problem. Did anybody notice the same behaviour?
This moment I can’t test it any further because the machine I am working on is MAX 5.1.4

Any help is appreciated.

The error *message* got restored in 5.1.5 – this doesn’t mean there was no error in 5.1.4.

Message boxes are not supported in the pattr world. I suspect your patch might work the same, despite the error.

Let us know if you find out otherwise.

Hi Andrew,
Ah, of course. I actually know the messagebox isn’t “pattered” but because of the new error-message I succeed to forget such a basic thing.
Interesting to discover there are these kind of faults in my patch. The total is so complex and never had a problem…
