using JitterGUIUtils in Javascript

April 1, 2007 | 3:49 am

Hi -

I’m trying to figure out how to use the enticing JitterGUIUtils classes in a javascript.

The one relevant example I can find ("jitter-gui-sliderexample") demonstrates their use in patcher objects, but not in a script.

So how would one instantiate something like a JitterGUISlider in a javascript?

First of all, I assume it’s necessary to copy ‘jitter_gui_slider.js’ to the jsextensions folder, right?

After I’ve done that, at least I can add this line to my script and compile without error:

my_slider = new JitterGUISlider("holiday");

But that’s as far as I can get.

If I try:

for(var n in my_slider)
post(n,"n");

I get back ‘maxobj’ and that’s it – whereas with any actual max or jitter object I would get a full list of attributes (as properties of the object).

Of course if I add

my_slider.color = [0.8,0.4,0,1];
my_slider.position = [0,0,0];
my_slider.scale = [0.3,1,1];

I get those back as properties, but clearly they weren’t there until I mentioned them.

(I’m assuming based on the example that color, position and scale are attributes of a JitterGUISlider – ?)
