renaming a bpatchers script name

April 23, 2011 | 4:54 pm

How do I rename a the ‘scripting name’ of a [bpatcher] in a parent patch using a message box. Can’t seem to find any straight answers!

The message (varname whateverthenameis) works for function tables and multisliders. Whilst (sendbox varname whateverthenameis) works for standard objects!
So how is it done for Bpatchers????

I should clarify what I need to accomplish a little….

I have 6 different [Bpatchers] in a Max for Live patcher.

My problem is that the objects inside the Bpatchers are reset whenever another instance of the patch is loaded on to a different track in Live.
