Read value from a toggle

    How can i read the value (selected/unselected) from a toggle? i don't see that an attribute for that to use with getattr.

      Hi the best I could do is to enable Parameter Mode Enable, thereby allowing one to set the toggle's initial state (0 or 1). This can then be "read" using [sel 0 1]. I guess you could also use [loadmess] to achieve the same thing. This probably won't help if you need to read the toggle state dynamically....

      Reading it dynamically is indeed what i want to do (with js). I don't get it, i seem to be able to read every parameter i see in the inspector, but the most important one (its value, or selected-state) isn't accessible?

      and third ugly-hacky-non_js way:
      and a little nicer pattr-also_non_js:

      I think this thread answers your question:
      obj.getvalueof()

      I think both n00b_meister and Andrzej are over thinking the non-js just a little bit ;) unless I am way off base, this is probably the easiest way of doing it... non-js, that is. Feel free to hit me over the head if I'm wrong!

      This was indeed what i was looking for: obj.getvalueof()
      Thanks!
