Thank you for your great help !
@ingox : I am totally amazed by your little patch... Hidding bangs behind the canvas is really nice. As I avoid space in file names (old command line habit ) I am really grateful to your solution : elegant and simple. I just needed to edit it a little to change the size. However, for long lines... Text goes out of the canvas. Enclosed a modified version which on keep the file name and gets rid of the path... but outputs the full path of the file: abstraction2.pd
It might help someone.
It uses [splitfilemane] and [mergefilename] from iem.[abstraction2.pd]
FlatGui does not want to compile anymore and Messbox does not accept X- paste and CTRL-V sends you into Pd edit mode....
Just to make it clear: I need to paste into whatever is compatible with Ctr-V and/or X-paste the path of samples ( so I cannot afford making typo mistakes somewhere in long strings) and which is visible in a subpatch or in an abstraction.
I recently installed/build Pd Vanila from source code on RPI: it compiles flawlessly.
Just read the linux instruction for building it.
I personaly do not bother with making a .deb package. I simply do a "sudo make install"
Source can be found there.
Most of the externals are also easily built if you take care with providing the right path to the PDINCLUDEDIR variable for the make file.
Hope this helps
@Whale-av : Thank you for extr doc.
Indeed the doc in Pd is wrong :
With zero or one argument, route sprouts an inlet to set the argument (which may be float or symbol).
In fact for a symbol, you need to specify the type or a dummy argument. I hope maintainers of Pd may correct it.
I stumble upon a limit of route. I wish to create a [route ] with no parameter to be able to init the control with a symbol containing the [f $1] value].
Exemple : [route Interface0] or [route Interface1] , created at start , depending on the instance number of the patch
The piece is the following :
[t a b]
| [f $1]
| [symbol Interface$1(
Does anyone have a solution to this?
I am struggling with the equivalent of a simple text entry in Pd ( i.e. a single entry text line like every GUI is providing, including Tk).
I wish to paste the text content of the clipboard (copied from somewhere else but Pd) into a the equivalent of a "text entry" box which would be held in an abstraction.
In Pd : The symbol box does not accept paste from clipboard ( barely X-paste) => So I can't use it
The message box... does not show on parent window whe belonging to an abstraction => So can't use it, neither.
What could be a solution?
Thank you for help
