equivalent of sendnamed in js


    Jul 01 2007 | 7:14 pm
    Hi all, this must be a terribly basic question but what is the C equivalent of javascript's sendnamed method?
    I want to send a symbol to all like-named receive objects in a max patch from my external but I can't seem to find anything about this in the docs.
    Thanks in advance, Matttijs

      You mean something like the following?
      void ForwardAnything( Symbol* iRecip, Symbol* iMsg, short iArgC, Atom iArgV[])
      { static Symbol* sSymThrough = NIL;
      Object* thing = (Object*) iRecip->s_thing;
      // Initialize our static symbol first time through if (sSymThrough == NIL) sSymThrough = gensym("through");
      // Make sure we have a vaild thing if (thing == NIL) return; // no good if (thing->o_magic != MAGIC) return; // still no good if (ob_class(thing)->c_sym != sSymThrough) return; // last check
      // If we make it to here, we're good to go typedmess(thing, iMsg, iArgC, iArgV);
      }
      This is working, tested code. Sorry about the Forum formatting.
      There is more useful stuff like this for Litter Pros.

      Wow Peter, that's great! Thanks a lot, it works flawlessly.
      Wouldn't it be nice to include this in the docs, cycling?

      Do you mean Litter Pro includes code examples?

      Glad this helped.

      Yes.
      Not everyone wants or needs the source code, which is why this is an on-request thing.
      Best -- Peter
