A problem with table and poly~


    Oct 15 2008 | 12:10 pm
    It's one of these days again ... I am facing the following problem for which i am sure i had solved it before :)
    Is it possible to create a table outside a poly~ object and then refer to it by name inside the various instances in order to read from it ? I've tried both using the name of the table within the poly~ as well as sending a refer message to it without however any success . In this situation i don't want to have the table saved first . I am pretty sure i am doing something wrong but for some reason i can't seem to find what the problem is .
    cheers

      it's not clear from your post, what the problem is. you might like to send a patch. using a named table works fine here on max4.6 volker.
      /* save as polyTable */
      /* main patch */

      without going into details, i think you have a naming conflict here. you should be careful not to choose the same names for tables, colls etc. and send/receive addresses.
      choosing a name like 'mySteps' and using that same name for the table inside the poly~ seems to work in the 'messy' patch you have posted. hth, volker.
