No [key] with jit.cellblock??


    Apr 24 2007 | 7:50 am
    hi
    i am using jit.cellblock for the first time (only to see/edit a Excel-like grid, in an otherwise no-jitter patch)
    when the patch is in non-edit mode and the jit.cellblock is in the patch, the [key] object does not report key strokes..
    that is on mac, osX48, maxmsp 457.
    some other object could do the job???
    thanks

      i just had the same situation. probably, jit.cellblock is still selected (like with numbox), so you have to click once more outside cellblock to deselect it. then, key is working again. I ended up using hi for keyboard controls for jit.cellblock to avoid this. klif

      ice.key will report keystrokes even when Max thinks some object has "focus".
      You can write me off-list for more information...

      hello Kasper,
      maybe keyup or hi(on mac) might help?
      best, nesa

      This came up about a year ago as well. My method then, as now, is to set .cellblock to "ignore click" and use external messages to select the cells I want (such as [key]->[counter]->[select $1])

      thanks for all the answers
      yes I was willing to select a cell and fill it with a keystroke
      so it is impossible - will try the diverses solutions you send me.
      best
