Drag & drop files from within a patch?

August 11, 2008 | 4:14 am


Just wondering if anybody can suggest the best way to get max to access a folder and allow for dropping of files from the compiled list into a dropfile object in the same patch. I’ve tried the file browser but it takes up too much screen space for this project and the folder object doesn’t seem to allow it. I get a .localized message in the umenu when I specify the file path –

"Macintosh HD:/Users/johngough/Music"

Something very small I’m sure but I’m caught for time. This function could be lived without but it would be nice to have. Tab object maybe?

Any suggestions?

Thanks for the posts Emmanuel,
I can’t get working properly though. I drop a file on the text button object but nothing happens..

Check the sub patches and find nothing. Sorry

Argh, more potentially useful, but totally disappeared and therefore very empty posts here..
