I started playing with the vst~ object in Max 7.2 today. I hadn't re-visited that object in a while, and I'm trying to understand how it works with pattrstorage and the new (to me) snapshot system. (In Max 6, a named vst~ object didn't even show up in the pattr system.)
My patcher has autopattr and pattrstorage objects, and I gave the vst~ object a "scripting name", so it appears inside pattrstorage.
However, the "data" column in the pattrstorage view just lists "dictionary" as the data contents for the vst~ client object.
Is there a way to extract information from that dictionary inside pattrstorage? Trying getstoredvalue messages to pattrstorage has not yielded anything. And trying to access the data directly through various dictionary objects isn't getting anywhere either.
