Pattrstorage – Get Client Data

Mar 12 2012 | 4:35 pm

Hey all!

I’ve stared myself blind on this stupid little thing..

Does anyone know, how to "ask" / get the client data with a message from a pattrstorage object?

I can make it output everytime the data changes, but i’ve stared my self blind on how to just "get a current state".

Please help :)

send a message "getstoredvalue " to pattrstorage and value appears in the output.
However i strongly suggest you dig deeper into pattrstorage to start working with stored values instead of client values (which are temporary more or less). It’s well worth invested time

Thanks! But then i have to assign a alias my self, or do I get them from somewhere?

My patch deals with tempoary numbers only, i don’t have to store anything, so thats fine for now I think. But thank you so much for the good advice!

getclientlist or get them from client window. :)
I believe you can also use the index number, but I didn’t deal with client window all that much, it’s in the reference file somewhere

I tried the getclientlist, but then I don’t get the value of the client, which is what I need. Do you have some other idea for retrieving the value from a client / object with scripting name, that can have multiple values?

You can send "getX" to pattrstorage. This will cause it to output a list of:

"X value"

if "X" is one of its clients
