possible for bang to act like toggle


    Nov 30 2007 | 10:44 pm
    Hi
    This is a very , very basic question I almost feel stupid but I haven't been able to answer it.
    I want a bang to act like a toggle in a [>= ] situation.
    To be more precise, when you have a toggle connected to a >= object, it displays that it is "on" when greater than and "off" when smaller than. Great, this is ok when you want to turn something on or off. But what I want is a bang once if greater than.
    With select, it bangs once if matches. But as I said, I don't want a specific number, I want a specific range.
    thanks alots

      you could use onebang to make sure it only bangs once.

      You can use [change] between comparison and select objects:
      Best.

      I tend to have comparisons followed by sel 1 or sel 0 very frequently. Sometimes I throw in change. ASCII style:
      [>= 3.14]
      |
      |
      [change] (optional)
      |
      |
      [sel 1]
      That gives me a bang when the input passes above a certain threshold.

      It sounds like you want something like a window comparator. Try this:

      try these, remember things like counter and comparisons don't work like most beginners think, a bang is any change of state, so sending an led a 0 is still a bang. Comparisons send out a 1 for ever number that's 'true' and a 0 for ever number that's 'false'. But this means it'll always bang even if you don't expect it to.
