[max/msp help] textedit banging

  • i suck at max/msp. never really got into the whole graphical language thing, but now i have an idea for something and i'm stuck on a stupid problem.

    the 'textedit' object will 'bang' as soon as you change focus (ie, click away, hit tab, etc). this is not ideal for my situation. i would like to hold on to that text, and then send it only when i push a button. i've tried to pass the output through various configurations of buttons with 'route' and 'gate' to no avail. the cycling 74 forums look like a mess...you guys are way cooler.

    any ideas? thanks!

  • well i guess i have a workaround with 2 textedits.
    textedit2 => route text => prepend set => textedit1
    button => textedit1 => output

    not very elegant, but maybe this will help someone somewhere.
