Sending a message to a newdefault


    Oct 23 2013 | 9:21 pm
    Hey folks,
    I have created a Max object using "newdefault" from my javascript. I want to then send a message to this new object. I am using the following function...
    maxObj.message(“list”, "test message");
    This seems to generate a script error. How do I send a MaxObject a message?
    Is there a way I can specify a inlet number as well?

      how about maxObj.message(“test", "message”)? A list should start by a number.

      Hey Emmanuel, thanks for our response. I tried your suggestion, it compiles fine but I get the following error...
      patcher: doesn't understand "test"
      The patcher I instantiated with "newdefault" is an abstraction of my own. Can I send the message to an inlet instead so that I can handle the message in my abstraction?

      Patcher are special…
      This is not pretty but you can do something like this.

      Ugh, not pretty at all...
      So are you saying there is no way to send a user defined message to a MaxObj via javascript?

      No you can send a message to MaxObject but not to a patcher ;-)

      I see, I seem to be confusing an abstraction with an object. Will have to think about this some more.
