Receive messages over a network
Receives messages transmitted over a network using the User Datagram Protocol (UDP).
Specifies the local port that the udpreceive object will use to listen for incoming messages.
The udpreceive object and its counterpart the udpsend object provide support for third-party Max objects that work with the Open Sound Control (OSC) protocol developed by the Center for New Music and Audio Technologies (CNMAT) at the University of California, Berkeley. An optional symbol argument (it can be any symbol) specifies that the udpreceive object should pass on UDP buffers as OSC 'FullPacket' messages instead of decoding them and outputting them as Max messages.
When enabled, status notifications to the Max Console are suppressed.
Common Box Attributes
Sets the text that will be displayed in the Clue window when the user moves the mouse over the object.
background [int] (default: 0)
Adds or removes the object from the patcher's background layer.adds the object to the background layer, removes it. Objects in the background layer are shown behind all objects in the default foreground layer.
color [4 floats]
Sets the color for the object box outline.
Sets the type style used by the object. The options are:
0 = 'regular'
1 = 'bold'
2 = 'italic'
3 = 'bold italic'
Sets the object's font.
Sets the object's font size (in points).
hidden [int] (default: 0)
Toggles whether an object is hidden when the patcher is locked.
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]
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]
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]
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.
Sets the color for the object's text in RGBA format.
0 = 'left'
1 = 'center'
2 = 'right'
All OSC-compatible UDP messages received at the port number of the host computer (designated by argument or themessage) are sent out the outlet.
