I have a feature request for pattr. What happens a lot is I use a
pattr to store a list, and a series of numberboxes to edit those list
values. This is very clunky, because I need to connect all the
numberboxes to a pack object that goes into the pattr, and coming out
of pattr need an unpack object and then multiple [prepend set]
objects coming from those outlets and back into the original
numberboxes. What might make my life easier would be to specify a
list of GUI objects in the @bindto of pattr, and then have pattr
automatically understand that what I want it to store is a list of
values corresponding to each of those GUI objects, in the order in
which I typed them.
Of course, I could create a separate pattr for each GUI object, but I
don't like doing that because then I have pattrs all over my patches,
and cluttering up the clientwindow and storagewindow of
pattrstorage. Data gets unwieldy very fast, and lists are useful for
keeping things readable.
If anyone has other solutions, I'd love to hear them.
