get patcher name (again)


    Jul 17 2007 | 12:28 pm
    Hi. 1st of all, sorry if this sounds very easy and stupid to you but these are my very first steps into JS.
    I'm trying to get a bpatcher scripting name from inside of it. I've searched on the javascript list and tried different scripts but can't get it working. Now I have a really simple js and I place it inside a named bpatcher and I only get when I ask for his scriptname. If someone could have a look at the following example... (I also have the js inside a patcher to compare)
    ____________________________________ getname.js
    function bang() { post(this.patcher.varname); }
    ____________________________________ testgetname.pat
    ____________________________________ main patcher
    Thanx.

      That should be
      function bang() { post(this.patcher.box.varname); }
      Check it out in javascriptinmax.pdf, the varname property belongs to Maxobj, not to Patcher
