pattrstorage - priorities issue

    Nov 08 2010 | 2:45 pm
    Isn't it possible to set priorities of some items that are within abstractions, from the top level patcher? I'm probably missing something here...
    Here is an example patch showing what I would like to achieve :
    (this example uses embedded bpatchers instead of abstractions, but that's the same issue)

      You are just missing a colon. You want something like, 'priority A::A_number $1' and 'priority A::B::B_number $1'.
      One thing, setting the priority of 'A' or 'B,' which are patchers, doesn't really make any sense, at least to me.

      ...ok! :) Thanks for pointing out my typo mistake.
      Patchers' priorities make sense to me. I think that if A got a lower priorities than B, its items will be restored first, even if all the items in A and B got the same priorities. At least I expect it. gonna give it a try.
      thanks Charles

      One can set the topmost patcher's priority, but subsequent patchers within the hierarchy will always be restored top down. From the ref:
      "Priority is only respected within a single level of the patcher hierarchy. Data in parent patchers will always be restored before data in nested patchers."

      Yes, sorry, the A and B of my example patch were not a good example for that. In my last post I was thinking of A and B as two patches at the same level. Charles
