extraneous spaces coming from ubumenu


    Sep 23 2006 | 2:27 am
    hey, apologies for my whining again. I'm trying to set up a system for accessing a folder and the files within, for sample selection. I'm using a folder and ubumenu object, to select the file, then trying to pass it on to another folder / ubumenu to select the aiff file. It looks to me like the message coming out of the middle inlet of ubumenu has a space after it. One that isn't there on the folder name! This is making the second folder object unable to read the incoming signal... I apologise, I don't explain myself very well... here's an example of what's going wrong. The messages apply to my own comuters filing, but it may help understand. Please let me know if you are able to help tom

      this should solve your space issue , which is not coming from [ubumenu] but from [prepend]... ( i changed the path to test on my machine so doublecheck i put back properly so it works on yours ) peace

      excellent! you're a hero, thank you so much. That's really useful to know for other stuff too. My next problem is- I'm trying to get the AIFf files in the folder in the second ubumenu to be displayed in a single column jit.cellblock, which will send out the message of the aiff files when it is clicked on. Any idea how I can make this possible? thanks very much tom

      this is not perfect, is a work in progress. you can drag files to a cellblock (1d), pressing QWERTY 1-4 sends the filename out the 4 outputs. the thing i did is to make the cellblock contain only the stripped pathname, the coll the full path, which is one reason why they arnt sharing the data internally (as colls and cellblocks can).

      The nice thing about the ubumenu is: you don't need the folder object. You can use the prefix setting of ubumneu itself.
      That way it will contain both, the file names in the menu and the complete path... (as always the help file/manual will unfold the details)

      i just realized about that this morning through another thread started by Gary Lee Nelson "Relative folder path in ubumenu autopopulate"... i am still learning ;) ... so Tom there are some enhancements that can be made, check Vade's patch submitted in that thread... by the way i liked your pink Ubuz....;) and i ll be a heroe only when ill drop George Bush in the Indian Ocean ( shark land ...)

      Thank you so much. Looks like a much bigger job that I expected to get the file's aif contents into jit.cellblock! Essentially, what I'm after is system where the user can select the destination of their tracks, for a live set, then select which track (via its own labelled folder in ubumenu) and as soon as its selected, a list of all the audio files appears, so they can select a file. I'm not even sure if jit.cellblock is the appropriate object. I've seen it done on lloopper buffer_host patch (http://lloopp.klingt.org/start.html) but if there's a simpler way to display the whole folder contents, that'd be ideal. Anyone know of any methods / objects other the [jit.cellblock] ? thanks!

      look for Klaus Filip's ll.cellblog quote : " helps inplace-editing of a cellblock by overlaying standard user-interfaces."
      i haven't studied it extensively but that might give you another track to look at.
