dynamically get umenu length

    Apr 01 2009 | 2:59 am
    i've looked in the helpfiles and on the forums to no avail.
    can anyone tell me how to dynamically get the number of items in a umenu object? thanks!

      Simply send the message "count" to the umenu and you'll get it from the right outlet (Ex. : count 3).
      When you build the content of a umenu with a folder, using "prefix thepathofthefolder", you automatically get the number of items in the folder from the right outlet ("populate 5").
      Before asking questions, don't forget to have a look at the reference. Max 5 makes it so simple to access the reference (in the help file).
