report the state of toggle?


    Apr 09 2006 | 4:12 pm
    hi
    i am trying to find a way to report, at any time, the state of a
    Toggle without changing its value.....
    of course Bang'ing a toggle changes its state - placing an [i] after
    the toggle might work (banging the left input of the [i]) but only if
    the said toggle was used in the patch so far (the default state of a
    toggle being 0, if it was not used i'd like to have it reported as
    well)
    there certainly must be a way, i just don't seem to be able to find
    it (of course I could loadbang 0 at init or something.... but maybe
    someone has a nicer idea)
    thanks

      If you put a fake value in the int box, you can isolate this value
      after easily.
      Best,

      you could use the pattr system. Give the toggle a name (ie mytoggle), and
      use a "getmytoggle"->[pattrstorage].

      thank Thijs and emmanuel
      _i did not knew the grab object, it works!!!
      but then of course once you give an default value to [i] - zero in
      this case since the load state of toggle is 0 - it's even simpler !!!
      max v2;
      many thanks

      But toggle and int do have the same default (0). Beside the grab your
      suggested solution is all you need...
