Send a list to a named bpatcher

    Hi list,
    I am stuck with a seemingly simple problem, which isn't explained
    clearly enough in archives/docs/examples for me.
    I want to send a list to a named bpatcher in my patch.
    How do I have to notate it. I tried the following:
    var Editor = this.patcher.getnamed("Editor");
    function list()
    {
    var a = arrayfromargs(arguments);
    Editor.message("list",a);
    }
    Throws a "patcher doesn't understand "list"" error in the Max window
    I guess its talking to the bpatcher object instead of my patcher loaded
    into the bpatcher. How do I access my bpatcher correctly?
    Stefan

      Did you ever figure this out? I don't see a way either.
      I remember a recent forum thread where someone else was complaining they couldn't script a bpatcher properly. Maybe this isn't supported in Max 4?
      I'd work around it by adding another named object that can be scripted properly, and connect that to the bpatcher.

      I finally sent it from outside the js with a pattrforward...
