Assigning scripting names to objects made by thispatcher


    Mar 31 2012 | 9:55 pm
    If I dynamically create objects with thispatcher, can I assign a name to them with the same script message?
    Barring that, how can I refer to them? At the ery least I would need to move them around and connect them.
    Is this a javascript job?
    Thanks much in advance

      With the script newdefault or script new messages, you can give the created object a scripting name, check thispatcher's helpfile.
      In the same helpfile, you'll also find how to move and connect objects.

      Specifically, @varname NAME in the "script new" message will name it whatever you please. You can even include $1 type variables to procedurally generate them.
