Selectively outputs ain response to any input which matches its arguments and will output non-matching messages out its right-most outlet.
The arguments can be a mix of ints, floats, or symbols. The number of arguments determines the number of outlets in addition to the rightmost outlet. If there is no argument, there is only one other outlet, which is assigned the integer number.
If there is a single int argument (or if there are no arguments) a second inlet is created on the right. Numbers received in that inlet are stored in place of the argument. If there is more than one argument, or if the only argument is not an, the right inlet is not created.
When exact is set to 1, the select object performs float comparison. When set to 0, floats are ignored.
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.
textcolor [4 floats]
Sets the color for the object's text in RGBA format.
Sets the justification for the object's text.
0 = 'left'
1 = 'center'
2 = 'right'
Note: If an int is listed multiple times as an argument, a message will be sent out the leftmost outlet only.
Note: If a float is listed multiple times as an argument, a message will be sent out the leftmost outlet only.
If the number or symbol received in the left inlet does not match any of the arguments, it is passed out the rightmost outlet.
If the number or symbol received in the left inlet is the same as one of the arguments, ais sent out the outlet that corresponds to that argument.
