Extracting the state of a toggle in JavaScript


    Mar 05 2010 | 2:11 pm
    Is there a message that can be sent to a Javascript-created toggle to learn its current state (which may have been altered by the user)?

      Assuming that you have a toggle somewhere in the patcher named "yoyo". You can use the pattr system to get it's value using getvalueof.
      function bang() { var toggle = this.patcher.getnamed("yoyo"); outlet(0, toggle.getvalueof()); }

      the javascript documentation could be extended / improved a little bit more..
      lets see what version 6 will bring to us!
      any references / articles in this matter are always welcome!
      happy patching guys!

      the current version is attached.
      yet super simple, build a grid of toggles than outputs bang when the playhead passes by a toggle set to ON.
      need to improve it a bit to be really useful, but the main concept and code is pretty much there.
      any feedbacks, suggestions, improvements, are more than welcome.
      peace
