What is the patcher.dirty method for?

January 7, 2009 | 10:35 am

Hello,

I see this example in the javascript help:

p = this.patcher;
p.fullscreen(1); // makes the patcher take up the whole screen
p.dirty(); // make an editable patcher dirty

What is the p.dirty method for? Does it have anything to do with the
dirty property of any MacOS file? I don’t understand…

It sets the dirty property of a patcher (like sending the dirty
message to thispatcher object), in opposition to clean. When a patch
is "dirty" you can’t close it directly, you need to save it (or not).
