==~

Is equal to, comparison of two signals

Description

==~ outputs a 1 signal when the left input is equal to the right input and a 0 when it is not equal to the right input. The right input can be a signal or a float.

Examples

Detect when a signal equals a certain value, or when two signals equal each other

Arguments

initial-comparison-value [number]

Optional

Sets an initial comparison value for the signal coming into the left inlet. 1 is sent out if the signal is equal to the argument; otherwise, 0 is sent out. If a signal is connected to the right inlet, the argument is ignored. If no argument is present, and no signal is connected to the right inlet, the initial value is 0 by default.

hint [symbol]

Sets the text that will be displayed in as a pop-up hint when the user moves the mouse over the object in a locked patcher.

ignoreclick [int] (default: 0)

Toggles whether an object ignores mouse clicks in a locked patcher.

patching_rect [4 floats] (default: 0. 0. 100. 0.)

Sets the position and size of the object in the patcher window.

position [2 floats]

g/s(set)

Sets the object's x and y position in both patching and presentation modes (if the object belongs to its patcher's presentation), leaving its size unchanged.

presentation [int] (default: 0)

Sets whether an object belongs to the patcher's presentation.

presentation_rect [4 floats] (default: 0. 0. 0. 0.)

Sets the x and y position and width and height of the object in the patcher's presentation, leaving its patching position unchanged.

rect [4 floats]

g/s(set)

Sets the x and y position and width and height of the object in both patching and presentation modes (if the object belongs to its patcher's presentation).

size [2 floats]

g/s(set)

Sets the object's width and height in both patching and presentation modes (if the object belongs to its patcher's presentation), leaving its position unchanged.

textcolor [float]

Sets the color for the object's text in RGBA format.

Messages

int

Arguments

input-comparison-value [int]
In right inlet: A number to be used for comparison with the signal coming into the left inlet. If a signal is also connected to the right inlet, a float or int is ignored.

float

Arguments

input-comparison-value [float]
In right inlet: A number to be used for comparison with the signal coming into the left inlet. If a signal is also connected to the right inlet, a float or int is ignored.

signal

In left inlet: The signal is compared to a signal coming into the right inlet, or a constant value received in the right inlet. If it is equal to the value in the right inlet, 1 is sent out; otherwise, 0 is sent out.
