you probably figured this out by yourself already, but here goes:
You were sending messages from springf to message box without a necessary bang to messasge box for output, but you were sending an unnecessary bang from springf to jit.lcd. I just changed that and the result:
Thank you for your response.
My point was to avoid message box and its unnessessary visualisation.
So I just wanted to put the output from sprintf into jit.lcd.
I still don't understand why this doesn't work…
a message with a comma is not a single message, its several messages. You could use the trigger object to get this kind of multiple messages.
try instead of the [t b s] a [t bang s s clear] and two sprintf objects.
(I guess you are not (yet) on Max 5...)
