line ramp time not working?

    why is it that when I try to directly set the ramp time (using the middle inlet) of my line object, it doesn't work? when I specify the ramp time in the message being sent to the left inlet, it works perfectly. i.e. this one works:
    but this one does not:

      Hi Rabid,
      thanks! the reason why I ask is that I need the ramp time to be independently adjustable. i.e. the other part of the patch is triggering an event every quarter note, so I need to calculate a quarter note ms value and ramp over that duration. I'll give it a whirl... so far, I can't seem to figure out how to dynamically propagate the ramp time value into a trigger module...
