Patch Path on load


    Feb 18 2006 | 10:16 pm
    Hi,
    The following code won't work if the mxj is loaded at the same time the patch file is opened:
    //gets the path of the mxj's parent patcher
    private void patchPath()
    {
    _patcher = this.getParentPatcher();
    _patchPath = _patcher.getFilePath().substring(0, _patcher.getFilePath().lastIndexOf('/') + 1);
    }
    You get "" as the path. If you reinitialize the mxj once the patch is loaded, then it works. Are there any plans to fix this? I'm tempted to file a bug report about this.
    thanks,
    wes

      This is not necessarily specific to mxj.
      Could you fix the problem by putting that code in
      a loadbang method? This is called after the patch is loaded.
      public void loadbang()

      Ah, Yes I could. Right now I've got it hidden in an if statement when
      I receive the first input, which is super ugly. I always forget that
      mxj has a loadbang method.
      thanks,
