strange pattr behaviour after update to Max 5.1.5


    Aug 31 2010 | 2:53 pm
    Hello everybody,
    I have a working patch in Max 5.1.4. (OSX)
    When trying to run the same file on Max 5.1.5 pattr notes something like:
    pattr: bufferfield can't bindto buffer-field.
    The same patch works as said without any problem in 5.1.3
    We discovered that we couldn't create a bindto to any messagebox. Binding to a number is no problem. Did anybody notice the same behaviour?
    This moment I can't test it any further because the machine I am working on is MAX 5.1.4
    Any help is appreciated.

      The error *message* got restored in 5.1.5 - this doesn't mean there was no error in 5.1.4.
      Message boxes are not supported in the pattr world. I suspect your patch might work the same, despite the error.
      Let us know if you find out otherwise.

      Hi Andrew,
      Ah, of course. I actually know the messagebox isn't "pattered" but because of the new error-message I succeed to forget such a basic thing.
      Interesting to discover there are these kind of faults in my patch. The total is so complex and never had a problem...
      Thanks!
