probably it’s very silly question, caused by my short experience with vvvv,
but it seems impossible to control the period pin of LFO, using something different than a ioBox with no input pin connected.
For example, I want the set the period pin, to the output pin of a Switch,
since i want the period changes according to some condition, why can i noot connect them?
thanks again for the help,
did you choose the wrong switch ? see patch

thanks for the reply, i selected the correct swiwtch, comparing your patch with mine. Something very weird happens, if i copy my block on a new patch, i can connect it, but in my subpatch i cannot, the same identical block, can it depend that the ioBox involved are receiving float values from outside?
attached it’s my patch, if you can take a look…

your patch is working here. i never heard of such a problem before. receiving float values from outside ? just a guess, did you name the IObox to make it an input of a subpatch and connect something in the main patch ? sounds like it… you can’t connect two things to one input…it’s a vvvv rule.
hi, yes the problem is something like this, i am using an output value of a subpatch as an input value of the same patch to control another output value of the same subpatch. in general i noticed i cannot use an output value to control an input value of the same node, correct?
why i am doing it… because i am doing a slideshow, and i want to change the fix ‘5 sec’ of delay between a ‘next slide’ event and another, when there is a video,setting it to the duration of a video. probably it sounds a bit weird,
but thanks for the help, i understand where is the logical problem of the first issue with the Switch node.
