Get id

a way to get the id of subpatches opened dynamically by CreateNode

(i see no other way of managing many subpatches at one time)

maybe Self (vvvv) with an id outlet
or
Create Node itself outputting the id of node last created.

thx

however you create a node (of a patch) :

if you want to know the node id in the parentpatch from inside an instance of a patch …

you may not believe this: this is really,really urgent.

woei made me a workaround which basically has some not so fine side effects.

pleaseplease.

modules modifying themselves inputpins in the parentpatch.

here woei’s patch with some comments

SelfId.v4p (11.4 kB)

“maybe Self (vvvv) with an id outlet

I really could need such a feature too! pleasepleasepleaseplease!!

yippiyaye!

the "ID in ParentPatch"pin on Self (VVVV) on the way!

and also every node now has a hidden pin serving its own id to the “own” patch!
i think this also will make some XPath/XSLT requests obsolete…
