Scripting question...

    Jun 08 2006 | 6:47 pm
    Is it posible to align connections (apple-Y) with scripting? I couldn't find it in the thispatcher help file or the scripting documentation. It would be nice to have neatly segemented patchcords for a visiual display which I am trying to script.
    Also I noticed that connect color doesn't seem to work directly, the patch unlock/lock status must be changed in order for the connection color to be affected by the (allready sent) script command. I'm using Max 4.5.7 and OS 10.3.9 on a G4 powerbook.
    TIA, Jonny

      You might want to have a look at Max Toolbox. I never took some time to have a closer look inside, so I don't know how it's done, but since it can align objects (and lot of other useful things) you may find a solution there. Anyway, Nathanael's Max Toolbox is great so I'm glad to promote this :-)

      Missed this message while I was in France. Unfortunately it is not possible to align patchcords using scripting as of yet. Would be a nice thing indeed.
      Julien : thanks for the nice words, always glad to see people enjoying the toolbox :)

      Crikey, have we really had 'align patchcords' for 5 years?! I have only relatively recently discovered it, and was wondering the same thing - any chance could we could have it scriptable, please? Max 6, perhaps...? cheers Roger
      P.S. Love Toolbox too.
