I’m looking for a way to detect when a coll has finished writing to disk (as a result of "write" or "writeagain"). Max 6 docs say this should be provided via a bang out outlet 3: "bang: Out 3rd outlet: Sent out when coll has finished loading in or writing a file of data." In Max 6.05 on Mac, I get a bang after sending coll a "read", but not after sending a "write" or "writeagain". Is this a bug or is there some trick to it?
There looks to be a lack of the stated functionality, I’ll take a closer look (though apparently this was missing in Max 5 too). In the meantime, you might try to use a trigger to tell you when the write process has finished:
