Using zl on the contents of a series of number boxes

January 12, 2010 | 6:28 am

I want to take the contents of a series of number boxes, turn it into list, send it through any of a number of zl objects, then put the result back into the number boxes.

I’ve come up with this, using a couple of gates to prevent a feedback loop (it is necessary that the number boxes send out their values when updated, so I can’t just use prepend set). Is there a better way of doing this?

you could store the packed list and bang it out at your leisure with zl reg. Might this work?

Since it has a UI, I’d probably just put a [prepend set] before the numboxes (and prepend set them into the pack as well). Bbracken’s solution is fine too.

Thanks, (zl reg) did the trick!
