In order to clean my main patch I want to put all my pattr
objects inside a subpatch. However I cannot manage to bind the
pattr object to any object in the main patch (Max 4.6.2).
The help patch for pattr has an example of a downward binding
but there is no example about upward binding. Should I use an
"up::" message ? Also the following explanation found in the
help patch is not clear: "If nested inside of a patcher,
abstraction, bpatcher or poly~, pattr objects will auto-name
their parent patcher based on the name of their associated
argument/file name or, failing that, based on their object
type (e.g. 'bpatcher')."
The following patch shows this problem (save as "pattr_test")
Of course I could use one autopattr to replace many pattr but
I do not want to save data for all my UI objects or having to
send tens of the "active" message.
So is it possible to achieve this or not?
thank you for helping.
