    Hi just went to the online forum and saw my posting was in a wrong thread. I had read about it, but I wasn't aware and used the reply button.
    Sorry, this question has nothing to do with sharingisfun's "make a js array patch" [message #62117].
    My question: I tried to create new panel objects using javascript: var a = this.patcher.newobject("panel",100,100,12,12); From this I get: error: patcher: doesn't understand "panel".
    It works when I do it with a toggle: var a = this.patcher.newobject("toggle",100,100, 15, 0); So I checked by stepping trough the patchers objects using the apply method. I get for the Maxobj property maxclass for some of my objects the word "panel". In Max text mode I get for a panel: #P user panel 180 167 12 12; When I try to script to a thispatcher object with the message "script new mypanel panel 100 100 12 12" I get the same error message.
    Is it impossible to create panel objects dynamically? Stefan --

      Try this: this.patcher.newobject("user","panel",100,100,12,12);
