patch a trigger

    Oct 02 2009 | 2:22 am
    can someone point me in a direction where i can find a variable trigger object
    To change the order of outputs of a trigger by a message
    sending a "patch 6 4 3 5 2 1" message to such obeject would bang the fifth outlet after the third - or before depending starting right or left ...
    like this patch but then variable

      just put some javascript together
      put the js object in a subpatcher
      and send a list to it " 1 2 3 5 4"
      var outarray = new Array();
      var def;
      var inobject;
      function list ()
      var len = arguments.length;
      var i=0;
      inobject = this.patcher.newobject("inlet", 100 , 100 , 20 , 0);
      def=this.patcher.newdefault( 100, 200, "bangbang", len);
      for (i=0; i {
      outarray[i]= this.patcher.newobject("outlet" , 100+i*30 , 340, 20 ,0);

      does not work when removing the outlets the connection to the outside world of the subpatcher also disappears....
      hmm have to put a dummy object in between
      will do after some sleep (now its 06:30 AM.... some late night maxxing here )

      Two solutions using standard objects. A wired version using router, and a wireless using forward.

      Something like this in a javascript maybe?
      // lh.vtrig
      outlets = jsarguments[1] || 2;
      function list() {
          a = arrayfromargs(messagename,arguments);
          for (i=0; i

      instead of changing the order of 5 outputs, i would
      change the content of the 5 variables.
      the 5 messages would be stored as list inside and i
      would trigger them by reading simgle elements from a
      [zl nth] and route them by a [gate 5].
      then any combination is possible.

      i like the wireless
      but still a 'long' way to go from bang till print
      and not easy to variable
      in this example i used a list of 5 but that has to be variable
      i tried such a thing too
      but it does not seem to variable the number of outlets
      do you have it working in a patch?
      also the number 5 has to be variable
      i do need to change order
      but do you have this in a patch?
      want to use this 'object' to change the drawing order of jit.matrix objects in a gl environment
      which one has to be in front of the other in a variable way
      this will do it with a fixed number
      outlets = 18;
      var i;
      function list ()
      for (i = 0; i outlet(arguments[i]-1,"bang");

      Unfortunately you can't dynamically re-create inlets and outlets in the fashion you're looking for. However, if you set the argument to a large number at the beginning it will still work when you use lists of a smaller size.
