Dict in Java ?
here http://cycling74.com/docs/max6/dynamic/c74_docs.html#dictionaries is written that :
well , hummmmm …. has someone luck with it ? I cant find the class object . does this description tells something different ?
Despite the documentation dict is not implemented into Java. I had some correspondence about that with cycling74 about a year ago. Back then there wasn’t a date set when it will be ready.
Thank you for the clarification Jan .
Just stumbled upon this. Either it should be implemented or the documentation should be updated.
Current situation is frustrating :-/
The documentation states that [dict] functionality exists equally within [mxj] as it does in [js], but it in fact does not?
Then am I right in understanding that it is not at all possible to access a [dict] from within an [mxj] object?
Correct: at the moment, dictionaries aren’t accessible to
Damn. Thanks for the clarification.
but, as of Max 7, dict is apparently supported by
mxj. from the Max 7 refpage: "Support for using Dict objects in
this sentence is as old as the dict object. so far it simply hasn’t been true. I did not try yet with Max 7 but i believe it is not implemented. the plans at c74 are to grant java functionality the way it is, but not to implement new features.
Hi Jan, you’re right. . . . i just tried with 7 and no dice. thanks for the info.
You could save your dictionary as a json and use a parse it to parse it. In the same way you would get the contents of a dictionary. Correct?
