Hi all, I was trying to resolve this problem searching in the forum posts, but i didn't find anything. Basically i want to write this sentence in the if object
I'm trying with other alternatives, but its much more complicated in the patch I'm doing.
If anyone can help i would really appreciate it.
- Jul 08 2009 | 6:37 amHi,I don't think it is possible to do that in a single if object cause of the ($i1+$i3). You'll probably have to do somthing like that :if you really want to do that in a single object, you could use expr :However you can see that the same test is done twice, so that this is not so efficient.

- Jul 08 2009 | 8:57 amThe [if] object cannot do mathematical operations, however if would be possible with [expr] as Charles has shown in his post above. The method I would use is in the patch below and takes advantage of the fact that lists sent to most objects, in this case [+], act as though each element was sent to a successive inlet.lh
- Jul 08 2009 | 3:00 pmhi i am just a beginner with max and even not a very good programmer with max. I wish to use if/else for RFID tags. But I believe that there might be a problem with the my if then else statement. Can you help me out
- Jul 08 2009 | 5:44 pmHi Rohit,In general, you'll get much more help if you post an example of what it is you are trying to accomplish--like the original poster above. Can you describe what you are trying to do?
- Jul 08 2009 | 6:04 pmHi!Thanks for the answers, but I'm having problems opening the patches, maybe because I'm running max 4.5? I've done everything the "post patches to the forum post" says.
- Jul 08 2009 | 6:24 pmYeah, the gibberish-looking text above is in the new Max version 5 compressed text format that makes posting patches much smaller and easier. Unfortunately, that only works in Max 5.
- Jul 08 2009 | 6:54 pmThe patch I posted above looked like this:[if ($f1+$f2) | [+ 0.]With three [flonum] objects going into each inlet of a [pak 0. 0. 0.] before the [if] so that the output is triggered no matter which number box you change. If you have trouble recreating just say and I'll post a screenshot.lh
- Jul 08 2009 | 8:29 pmIt's working great! Thanks a lot, if you are around Buenos Aires i can send you a gift Thanks to all that replied to!and now, back to work!
- Jul 08 2009 | 8:33 pmUnfortunately not, but never mind, I'm glad it helped. You should definitely have a look at max 5, you can download a 30 day demo for free, it really is a big step up from working with 4.x!lh
- Jul 08 2009 | 9:04 pmi will!Thanks again.
- Jul 08 2009 | 10:37 pmhi I am using RFID tags which give output in form of 013e218c.. something of this sort. I am trying to compare the values using if like $s==......... then send 0 out2 else 1. something like this but it is giving syntax error. is there a method to type cast in max
- Jul 08 2009 | 10:39 pmTry [zl compare] which can match strings and lists.lh
- Jul 09 2009 | 9:50 amthanks. I will try it.But can you give me the syntax.Rohit
- Jul 09 2009 | 11:31 amHave a look at the [zl compare] helpfile. It has two inlets and you send one list to each, if they are the same it outputs a 1 else a 0. You could then use [sel] or [gate] to trigger or route information depending on what you're trying to do.lh
