pv & pattr


    Nov 13 2006 | 10:15 pm
    Hello
    I would like to save a list with a preset slot with pattrstorage, and
    have it banged out when slots are changed, yet I cant bind pv to a
    pattr object. Is there an easy way to get lists into a pattrstorage
    slot?
    Thanks,

      Hrm - youve got a point, although I should have been more specific. I
      want to be able to store arbitrary (read, I dont know what they will
      be before hand) lists in a shitload (read quite a few) subpatchers,
      in no particular/expected order, coming from "the outside world",
      ubumenu I could set with prepend append, and then prepend symbol to
      set the item, but it seems wasteful to keep populating ubumenu that
      way (see the attached patch)
      But I get the feeling I am having a brainfart and am missing
      something very obvious, and will be slightly humbled by missing it.
      Let me post an example patch anyway, so you can all chuckle at me
      Heres an issue : if I use setitem on a ubumenu bound to a
      pattr/pattrstorage system, pattrstorage doesnt update the data. Only
      if I switch slots - which means I have to keep adding to the ubumenu.
      pv and value and all those objects would be great to have working
      with pattr, as you could set, store and recall arbitrary data with
      them. Are there any 'cleaner' ways of doing this?

      That sounds like a bug. Will investigate.

      Just use an unbound pattr object. It's all that you need, unless I am
      catastophically misunderstanding your problem.

      Remember how I said I thought I was missing the obvious? I was.
      Thanks Jeremy. Brilliant. All is well with the cosmos now :)
