unmenu items

October 24, 2010 | 9:49 pm

Hello everyone,
pretty simple question but some how I keep getting an error message in the max window while using groove along with unmenu and prepend set message here is a copy of my code (pretty simple messing around with the groove tutorial which i later wish to granulate)

— Pasted Max Patch, click to expand. —

and also a screenshot of my finder window with all the files stored in the location cheers.

You need to connect the 2nd outlet of the umenu to [prepend set], not the first one.

hey charles thanks a lot for your fast reply just realised that and when highlighting the output for the unmenu in the clue window it stated that on the output had connected originally this was for numbers instead of text cheers

@Ch: I think you’re right here, but what do you make out of the groove~ reference page ?

It seems to contradict itself a little; the short description after the set message states that the behavioral flag should be an int (0 or 1) whereas the longer description after that backups what you say here; the second parameter should be a symbol which switches the buffer~ object.

Or am I misinterpreting the reference page here?

The short description in the reference is an error. I’ve seen it in more places, copy-pasted and then forgotten to update. Typically post midnight work I suppose.

Gotcha, thanks for clearing that up for me.

@jvkr not sure about the midnight work… but it’s post midnight here… and that’s been fixed for the next incremental. Thanks for mentioning it.
