I managed to do it, allthough it is very slow at this time (maybe I should check if something changes and only setPatch if the input has changed), so only intended for configuring settings and saving the patch with your preconfigured values.
The example uses a simple toggle button, but it would be more useful with real values of course.
I would be happy to use it in a renderer, but has anyone already implemented TEXTBOXES in a renderer, where you can type your desired value? I have to get a few things working and don’t have the time to develop that myself. If you know of such a thing, please let me know, for I haven’t found it.
…are not meant to form a GUI…
But everyone uses sliders, toggle buttons and bangs for controlling stuff, at least in examples, so maybe they are not strictly meant for this, but they are the only standard way for IO. And they happen to be called IOBoxes, which suggests that the developers did have Input/Output in mind when they were developing them.
Besides, I wanted text input, next to other input methods like mouse, midi, etc.
