Using premade objects as maxobj's in js


    Nov 05 2007 | 4:51 pm
    Does anyone know if there's a way to assign a pre-existing object in a patcher to a maxobj in a js? The only way I can find is to create them with the js, and that doesn't work for my purpose...

      Hi,
      you can use patcher.getnamed:
      getnamed (name)
      Returns the first object found in a patcher with the given name. The
      name is a
      local name as specified by the Name... dialog in a patcher, not the
      name of a send
      or receive object. You can also set an object's name using the
      varname property of
      a Maxobj.
      best,
      nesa

      Ok, thanks.
      I finally got it to work.
