Another probably easy question for someone who knows how to read the docs… I just can’t find the info I need or if I did find it, I don’t know that I did :(
Ok, so I have an object for which I would like more than 1 @attribute.
I use the following to setup the args for the inspector:
CLASS_ATTR_LONG(c, "mode", 0, t_MRattrTest, mode); //adds inspector support and attribute to object
CLASS_ATTR_STYLE_LABEL(c, "mode", 0, "enumindex", "Mode"); //add text support to inspector
CLASS_ATTR_ENUMINDEX(c, "mode", 0, ""int" "float""); // text that is to be used in the inspector
CLASS_ATTR_FILTER_CLIP(c, "mode", 0, 1);
CLASS_ATTR_SAVE(c,"mode", 0); //if attribute is set in inspector and NOT typed into the object it is saved
CLASS_ATTR_LONG(c, "area", 0, t_MRattrTest, area);
CLASS_ATTR_STYLE_LABEL(c, "area", 0, "enumindex", "Area");
CLASS_ATTR_ENUMINDEX(c, "area", 0, ""Off" "On"");
CLASS_ATTR_FILTER_CLIP(c, "area", 0, 1);
In my _new(…) routine I then use attr_args_process(x, argc, argv);
That seems to work fine for the first attribute, but not the second or third (specially if the arguments are typed in in a different order than they were implemented). How do I implement several @-style attributes? Is there a convenience function or do I have to do it manually?
I thought maybe attr_args_offset() would be of help, but it only gives me the first instance of an @attribute and if arguments and @attributes are mixed that doesn’t work anymore…
I did read the "Sending Messages, Calling Methods" part of the docs, but am none-the-wiser… where can I read up on this? any code examples I could study.
