opposite of pattrforward?

    I need something like a receive that can dynamically bind to a named object anywhere in the pattr system. Somewhat like pvar, but global. Any ideas on how to do this in max/ jscript, even c maybe? Thanks.

      Maybe I don't need 1:1 linkage after all, grab will do for now. I still think it would be very nice to have an external like this, to monitor any named object without s/r the way pattrforward can the other way around. Just an idea.

      That's kind of what pattr does, no? Apart from the multiple outlet thing.

      Thanks Jeremy, you're right. I never had a reason before to use the pattr binding, and I totally forgot about it. I'm always addressing parameters by sending stuff directly to the specific pattrstorage. I have to rethink my patch design a little, because I'm scripting modules in different places depending on the setup, which leads to variable pattr paths, but that's my problem. The pattr binding is exactly what I need. But it makes me wonder... what's so special about pattrforward, if you can also use a pattr + bindto to send a variable to a named object?
      Best, T_

      Weeeeeeell, kind of. pattrforward allows any old message to be sent to any named object, not just a message related to the object's "value", which is what the other pattr objects are concerned with. the release version will also talk to an arbitrary inlet of the target object.

      ah ofcourse:) thanks for your explanation. (last stupid question) The final pattrforward, will it talk to a named bpatcher's inlets too? pvar and the current pattrforward don't seem to do that. Or am I missing something again....

      It will when I fix the crasher your message permitted me to find. Thanks!

      Wouldn't this just be [pattr] itself? At least from a parent patcher you can bind it to subpatcher objects as well.

      You're right...but that's what Jeremy wrote already in his first reply;-)

      pattrforward spelled backwards is drawrofrttap. drawr- of-rt-tap. hrm, wheres this leading?
