What is scripting name/var name for?


    Dec 30 2013 | 9:56 am
    Can anyone explain to me how I should/can use the "scripting name" attribute in javascript? In the inspector I can see it is the same thing as the "varname" property, but I am not sure exactly what this helps me do.
    It seems like this could somehow be used to access the various objects in the patcher but I have tried var x=this.patcher.getnamed("setvarname"); function bang(){ x.outlet(0,"hello");
    And that-and any variations, do not work. Thanks for any input.

      Hi ! varname is a scripting name for your JS api , so you can find it inside your patcher easily through JS for example this way :
      var myObject = this.patcher.getnamed("yourScriptingName"); // lets say numbox has varname of "yourScriptingName"
      
      function bang(){
          myObject.message("int",9);
      //or
          myObject.int(9);
      }
