Sprintf Question


    Aug 31 2006 | 10:40 am
    Hello list,
    Is there a way that you could use the sprintf object to output arguments to another object box. It seems you can only output to a message box.
    Is there an external that would allow this functionality?
    I wish to prepend a number to a list, but instead of having multiple prepend objects, i would like to have one and define the argument (the number i wish to add) using sprintf.

      Sorry, i'm fairly new to using max. I'm can't seem to work it out with pak.
      I can't open the max text you included iin your reply. I'm running Max version 4.5.2, and the new from clipboard feature isn't available.
      The text that usually get to open begins with "max v2" and ends with "#P pop;".
      Would you be able to send another version of the patch?

      here you are:
      btw, if you compare the 2 textversions you can easily find out how to make future text clippings readible for 452. or just upgrade :)

      Thanks a lot.
      My first port of call was to edit the text. Must of missed something out :-) I can't upgrade max, because i'm currently using computers at university. Unless of cause i ask the admins!
      I do have one question though, what is the "_" object in your patch. The version of max here didn't recognise it as an object. Is it an external? Obviously the functioning of the patch is dependent on this.
      Sorry, if i'm being dumb, but you gotta learn sometime!

      The upgrade is free, just download the newest version, its so much better and convenient...

      Of course, I do it all the time...

      Why do you believe that, did you try to send stuf to other objects?

      Yes, sprintf ;-)

      You can do that as well with sprintf as with prepend. There is a set message to prepend which would allow you to change the part which will be prepended.
      (All this info is in the help files btw, if you still have problems, send an example patch, then we can have a look at it...)
