2 questions about multislider

    Hi there.
    Is there a way to to retrieve the value of any given slider and possibly the number of that slider when selecting that slider with the mouse. This can be done with pack but what if I have say...500 sliders? I think the answer might involve [zl] but I'm not to familiar with this object.
    Also, What would I do to send random numbers to 500+ sliders?
    Thanks guys.

      Hi,
      the fetch message will do that for you.

      I'm not sure I understand correctly what you'd like to achieve. The patch bellow will give you the index number of the slider you're manipulating, and its value. zl objects won't work if you have more than 256 sliders. You'll need the ejies to make the patch work.
      Best, ej

      Thanks for the reply. This brings up another question. When someone posts a patch in text form, what do you do when the first two lines are missing? I see this all the time. I have no problem loading other patches but what do I have to fill those first two lines with?
      Thanks..

      you can copy it to a text file, then delete the 'space' in front of each.... then copy the text and New From Clipboard.... than it works ;)

      Just copy the posted text in the forum, then go to max and make a new patcher then just press paste! You do not have to add the missing lines.
      best,
