mysql data import into jitter


    Mar 23 2006 | 3:50 pm
    Hi all,
    I would like to get text data out of a mysql database and use this
    text ( names ) to make a realtime movie just fading them in and out.
    I don't think this is too complicated but I have no idea how to
    import this data into max/msp jitter.
    If someone could point to the right object names, I would highly
    appreciate it.
    Thanks in advance.
    Andreas

    Mac OS X 10.4.5
    Max/MSP 4.5.7

      MXJ, and a MySQL JDBC layer, and a chunk of Java and Jitter coding. I
      don't do a great deal of Jitter so I can't help with that off the top
      of my head (jit.gl.text is probably what you need).
      Sounds like a nice little assignment. Have fun.

      for questions like these you might want to check http://
      www.maxobjects.com/. look for the mysql object, there is already a
      handy object you can query your database with.

      I have a sample patch that connects to a mysql database (a specific
      database..), but, the code might be useful:
      then you could take the strings, dump them into a jitter string
      matrix (jit.str.xxxxxx) and then to a jit.lcd for pixel text or
      jit.gl.text2D or text3D for openGL text.

      Thanks a lot !
      Unfortunately my mac is not usable at the moment.
      I download the shareCMS SQL 1.0 and will have a look at it
      hopefully soon.
