dynamically changing coll data in txt file???

    Jun 15 2010 | 11:38 am
    i have a midi controller patch that uses the coll object & a txt file to read the x/y axis coordinates of video squares across a videoplane (like this: http://bit.ly/cqexQi)
    the text file looks like this more or less:
    36, -1.35 0.8; 37, -1.35 0.48; 38, -1.35 0.16; 39, -1.35 -0.16; 40, -1.35 -0.48; 41, -1.35 -0.8;
    & so on..
    is there a way to set variables instead of hard-coding the x/y positions so that i can dynamically change the positions of the different videos (with sliders or something i imagine)??
    any insight would be much appreciated.

      Have a look at the coll help patch. The sub or nsub messages will do what you need.

      this isn't a direct solution, but here is a patch I use to dynamically update and populate a [coll] with user variables; hope it's some use to you:
