I am writing a patch where I need to store a series of filenames and other parameters from run to run.
autopattr and pattrstorage seem to work fine for numbers – however, the messageboxes where I am keeping filenames just show "object(message)" as the content, in the pattstorage clientwindow and storagewindow, also in the XML file when I save.
Is there a way to use pattr to save strings? Or should I be looking at something else?
Have you looked at the savemode attribute of pattrstorage? Set it to savemode 3 for no prompting. Try to save the file manually first by just sending a "write" message, or make sure the file you try to save, "bsl", already exists.
