setting [grab] target

    Feb 03 2006 | 10:32 pm
    I want to use the grab function in a dynamic way, i.e set the target and then grab it. The external doesn't have a "set" messages. Does anyone know an elegant workaround or alternative?

      As great as the help files are, they don't tell you everything.
      I found the set message by ctl+opt clicking on the object, and read about it on p. 225 of the Max Reference Manual.
      In short, it works.

      When I forget to look it up, and even that I've used this before, it's probably time to get some sleep ;-)
      Thanks, T-
