Define global function


    Feb 01 2014 | 11:06 pm
    Reading this article a global variable can be defined like this:
    // Global (Max namespace) variables
    glob = new Global(“bounce”);
    glob.starttime = 500;
    Is there some way to define a global function? I have a few utility functions that I would prefer to maintain just in one place and not in every patcher.

      Hi
      As u may have noticed that our "global" is an object . We can pass functions within . Just make sure about what u want to return and to were "this" is pointing to . Your function will not be global to js instance so " this" will point to your global object .
      u will need to take care for it if u will be in need to pass references to "this" . As i dont know how u want to use it , im just warning in case of some surprises .

      Ok thanks for the advise. Can I please ask you if you can show an example how I can define a function using this and I can then test it.

      Hi !
      inside one instance :
      var Util = new Global(“util”);
      Util.echo = 9 ;
      Util.func = function(){
       post("i think im allowed to do this\n");
       post("got echo : " + this.echo +"\n");
      };
      inside another instance :
      var Util = new Global(“util”);
      Util.echo = -10 ;
      Util.func();
      ...
      i believe that it should work this way . let me know
