populating a umenu


    May 20 2009 | 10:20 pm
    Hi
    I am building a patch were I would like to populate a umenu with the contents of one of several sample folders.
    Populating the menu is not the problem, but creating a message that will load the sample from the chosen folder into the buffer is where I am having the problems.
    I have assigned a prefixfolder to the umenu and am sending the message out through a prepend with the replace message.
    The buffer will not read though.
    Think I might be missing something obvious...?
    Any help would be great
    Cheers

      The patch below should work for you. To find out where you were going wrong try putting a [print] after each outlet and seeing where the output differs from what you would expect. Oh, and remember the "autopopulate" attribute of [umenu].
