Changing bpatcher argument

    Aug 11 2011 | 12:32 pm
    i need to have a bpatcher with a dynamic argument, how do i change the argument value externally? (this is the #1 inside the bpatcher, and the argument value in the inspector of bpatcher)
    Should be easy, maybe i'm missing something here...but i can not change it.

      I don't think you can, not sure. use send/receive instead, or inlets?

      Yes you can : name your bpatcher talk to the named bpatcher via a thispatcher object outside your bpatcher with your arguments in a script sendbox (message box) you can have up to 8 arguments i think
      script sendbox mybpatcher args cat cow frog I thispatcher
      hope it helps
