If message box changes, send the message in the box (emulate clicking on it)

    Hello,
    I am controlling audio files and I need to essentially mimic the effect of clicking on a message box in order to tell the buffer~ which file # to play.
    I've tried T B S but but it's no use. Another way to think about it would be [zl change] but instead of just banging when it changes i need it to send the message.
    I think this is relatively simple but it's driving me crazy.
    thanks,
    Dan

      I've used the textedit object for that very purpose.

      could you whip up a quick patch showing what you're trying to do?
      in lieu of that, i'd agree with John - try using textedit then sending the output through a route object with the argument 'text'
