Using Tab to Open Subpatchs

Hey Guys,

Ive been experimenting with making patchs more user friendly by using the interface objects, one ive tried doing recently is using tab to open subpatchs, however, everytime I’ve tried connecting tab to the subpatchs and clicking on the tab it opens all of them at once, but Im trying to make it so that a specific patch will launch when one of the tab buttons is clicked on, I’ve tried using the unpack object to resolve this but instead of opening all the subpatchs it will only open one of the subpatchs everytime I click on the tab buttons, heres the patch with the problem im having, any suggestions would be awesome!

Hey JEJ,

You don’t seem to have posted a patch, but this might help…

I see what you mean.. Weird. Even when message boxes aren’t getting banged all of the subpatches will open. Like phantom bangs. wtf?

Anyway, I got it working keeping the selector lines separated.

I know there is an easier way.. would love to see it if anyone would like to jump in…
