For some externals I'm planning, I would like to be able to query the values of named [pattr] objects and named UI objects that have been exposed to the pattr system by [autopattr]. I'm kind of lost on where to look for info on this (and with searching specific forums still broken on the new site, that hasn't been much help).
In the "Preset Support" section of "Enhancements to Objects" in the Max5 API, there is mention of "more powerful and general state-saveing, use the pattr system described below" but no more pattr mentions after that. After browsing around the modules I came across places that suggested reading the PattrSDK from Max-4.5.5-SDK for more details, but as far as I can tell, that only has information on registering your objects with the pattr system (?). Is what I'm looking for documented anywhere? Or if not, does anyone have an example?
