Can [itable] report values changed with the mouse?
Aug 28 2017 | 1:37 pm
I'm retouching an arpeggiator/sequencer I made with max4live, where I use [itable] as the main interface, as it has very good functions for what I wanna do. I need to add some additional functionality to it to make the app even better. To do that, I need to get some sophisticated response from itable whenever I change its values with the mouse. Right now, the only thing I can get back from it by using the mouse on the interface is a bang from the right outlet, and the visual feedback on the interface telling me where my mouse is hovering, in XY-format. The bang is not enough, I need to know where the mouse was pressed or released. If I could snatch this XY-data whenever I pressed my mouse, I would be all set! Anyone know if there's something I can do with the itable object to get the values I need?
Specifically, what I want to happen is that whenever I change a value on the grid, it will work like normal, but whenever I press a coordinate that's in the same spot as before, it's gonna become "nothing", or a hole in the sequencer. The point is having the possibility of creating "pauses" in the sequencer, so that I can make an arpeggiator with custom rhythms.
Thanks in advance for answers! Best, Jonas
