adstatus bug


    Aug 30 2006 | 7:40 am
    Instead of filling the menu with a bang adstatus driver fakes the output...
    Steps to reproduce bang and print that part of the help file.
    Expected behaviour: refill the menu (clear, append driver1, append
    driver2...) or do whats it claims to do: send out the driver names.
    (I'd prefer the first variant, seems more usefull...)
    This is important, to be able to choose an newly added audio interface
    without restarting Max. This would work in OS X 10.4.6 and Max 4.6 for
    sure...

      I thought that a bang would result in the reporting of the current
      state via a "set" message, but a loadbang would cause the menu to
      refill? That's what I'm getting from the PDF reference, anyway. The
      way it's laid out in the help file is sort of confusing, though. - David

      An I would need the promised behaviour, for sending a "set 1" message
      nobody would need the adstatus object...
