    bonjour, how to get the instance value generated by a #0 in a bpatcher ? how do i extract its value from an object such as a [send #0_something] so i can use this value outside of the bpatcher ? thanks in advance

      I don't know exactly what you're trying to do. Do you just want to get the number value from the bpatcher to be able to send messages to it? Here's an example:
      main patch:
      save as bpatch:
      One other thing: There must be a (any) character behind the #0 message, otherwise it doesn't work (you can try this).
      If you're using many bpatchers (as #0 suggests), you must build something to keep track of the numbers, use a coll for example.

      thanks a lot that is exactly what i was aiming for and trying to do. and i of course forgot about adding a symbol after the #0 to get the instance value when loading as you did here :
      best,

      And in case you need the #0 as number, you can do this:

      a simple [loadbang]-[#0]-[outlet] should work, because the arguments to a subpatcher are always initialised first.
      if [loadbang]-[#0]-[outlet] does not work for you then try [loadbang]-[#0]-[pipe 0]-[outlet]
