bpatcher lockeddragscoll attribute

Apr 21 2009 | 8:12 am


I’m probably missing something obvious, but I can’t figure out what’s the effect of the "lockeddragscroll" attribute of bpatcher.
I did a few tests, but I did not see any behaviour change.
Any clue?

The documentation says:

"Enables/disables drag-scrolling in the bpatcher window when the patcher is locked." (default 0)

But when testing this, I can’t get the bpatcher to drag/scroll even if the attribute is turned on. I think I remember from the Max4 days that you used to be able to, but none of the key combinations seem to do it.

Anyone else?

Ok, thanks for your answer Bas, I got it!

the key combination is cmd+shift, as stated in the max 4 bpatcher’s help file.

DUH, of course. How stupid. I was trying to feed the attribute to the wrong place, namely the thispatcher of the bpatcher. cmd-shift was always the keyboard shortcut for it. Thanks for clearing up…guess I should use the inspector more often, I just can’t get used to it blinking and slowing down stuff.
