Accepts, as arguments, a list of numbers which are sent out sequentially. In addition, you may use one or more "expr"-style statements, which start with the word "is", which will be evaluated with the result being sent out. "is" statements need to be separated by slashes.
The format of sxformat arguments is similar to statements in a "lib" object script.
Obligatory. The arguments are a list of numbers which represent the values of individual bytes of a MIDI system exclusive message. The first number should be
Arguments for data bytes can also be in the form of a mathematical expression (like the expressions in expr and if objects) to be evaluated before numbers are sent out the outlet. The expressions can contain changeable arguments in the form , followed immediately by an inlet number (for example, ). The changeable arguments are replaced by numbers received in the specified inlet. Expressions used in place of numbers should be preceded by the word , and should be separated from other arguments with a slash (/) on either side of the expression (see example).
If the value of an evaluated expression is less than 0, no number is sent out in place of that expression. This allows you to send variable-length system exclusive messages.
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'
When a number is received in the left inlet, any expressions in the argument are evaluated and the numbers in the list are sent out one at a time, as bytes of a MIDI system exclusive message, for transmission by midiout.
