[unpack] bangs left on?

Hi all,

[unpack] in Max 4.5 bangs 1x when a value is sent, like every other
max object I can think of. Check out the help file.

[unpack] in Max 5 bangs ∞x (infinity times, meaning the bang stays
lit) when a value is sent. Check out the help file.

Bug or feature?

I can’t reproduce that.

As is *always* the case in situations like this:

What platform are you using?
What OS version?
What version of Max are you running?
Do you have to do anything mysterious to the help
file to get this to happen? If so, what?

Assuming we’re looking at the same help files, I
don’t see anything like what you describe.

i had this happening sometimes too.
it looks as if the bang would bang continually (stay lit), when in
reality its rather a thing with an un-updated display of the bang.
(bang stays lit after banging)

Dear Greg et al,

Thank you for you message.

I am using OS X Leopard.
I am using Max 5.0.2
I am using a MacBook Pro

Unfortunately, after I restarted my computer it stopped. I will write
back when I can reproduce reliably. It appears that one other user is
having a similar problem now, Hans.

Emmanuel, as is *always* the case in situations like this, which
platform can’t you reproduce on?

Thanks guys!

Both in max 4 and 5 buttons will stay lit, with slightly different behavior. In 4 you have to click the mouse once in order have another ui object respond; the button would go *off*. In 5 other ui objects will work on the first click, but button stays lit.

A patcher that creates a lit button is one attached to opendialog. I have experienced this since several years on a number of mac os’s.
