wish in max 5.0.9 in using expr

Dear developers,

We must always write an extra message in order to use the argument for an abstract within the object [expr].

Thus, the following works:

— Pasted Max Patch, click to expand. —

However, the following doesn’t:

— Pasted Max Patch, click to expand. —

Can you, also in the second case, allow the outlet of [expr]?
Then we can use [expr] for the abstract more easily.

Neither one worked for me because of the # sign. If you change them to the following, they both work.

many people use loadbang-float #1-expr or loadbang-float #1-slide~
instead of writing the # argument directly into the object because
it seems more logical to have it outside.

do this little bit of extra work and you will soon find out that
you require the flexibilty it gives you.

there are a few other objects which dont take arguments like [counter], best if you avoid it for abstractions.

Thanks a lot.
I already know the methods suggested you.
And I have programmed with [loadbang]-[message #1]-[expr].
It seems to be logical.
But, it would be better that MAX knows automatically that the symbol # means that the programer want to use this [expr] as an abstract.

Take a look at the loadmess and patcherargs objects as well.
