test the dirty byte of a patcher window ?

July 14, 2009 | 10:53 am

I was just wondering if there is a way to test the dirty byte of a patcher window, without programming in java… ?

In thispatcher help file i don’t see that…

thanks,
Alexandre

(on an other topic last week, i posted the following patch to save a patch automatically every 4 minutes, but using some java method to test the dirty byte (in an mxj object explained here : http://www.cycling74.com/forums/index.php?t=msg&th=34302 )

You can set the property using [thispatcher] ("clean" or "dirty") however I don’t think you can test it. You do both in javascript using the wind.dirty property which doesn’t involve diving into java.
