New System to work with functions with Line-Output-Format:

Look at the picture… So, it works for me… But its not the solution.
I generate MANUALLY A LINE FROM 0 to 4000 ms an put it in the left input. So the line runs manually and the output is a dataflow of corresponding Y values for each point!!

In my opinnion the function object is buggy!!! Does anyone have an other solution?

You have points with sustain, this will cause line~ to stop until you send next messages to function. You could deactivate the clicksustain attribute to prevent function from creating sustained points.

In the inspector i don´t the any attributes…

Like I said, clicksustain so uncheck Allows Changing Sustain by Clicking. You can also use the clearsustain message to remove the sustain state of every points.

HGH: screenshots are not that useful. Post the problem part of your patch, so that people can see what’s really wrong.

I don’t think that "the function object is buggy." I think there are just some issues with your patch.

That said, I would really love to see a new rule for function that would only allow one sustain point. When you added a sustain point the previous sustain, if any, would loose it’s sustain status.

With autosustain activated you can have the "one before the last" point automatically sustained.

@albertocarretero it’s a different issue:

line doesn’t support multi segment. You’ll find plenty of abstraction out there to fix the problem. ej.line from the ejies does this.
