Update object position

June 30, 2011 | 12:46 pm


Does anyone know of a way to dynamically update the position and size of objects in the patcher window?

I know this info can be found in the inspector under "Patching Rectangle" but I would like to update this info into a coll as I move objects around.

Hi Tom
Just change the patching_rect attribute via message:

Thanks Andrea, but that’s not what I meant. Sorry I see my question wasn’t clear.

I know how to change the size and position of objects.

My question was meant to ask if there is a way for the location and size of the object to be reported as I move the object around with the patcher in edit mode?
