I’m trying to pass strings out from several subpatches so that they can be put into another subpatch and displayed. My idea is to put the message string in one output from the subpatch, and a bang in another so the receiver can know when to grab the message.
I have a bunch of bools I can use to know which message to send, but I don’t know how to use them to select the right message. My first thought was to use a
switch, but I can’t figure out how to use it for this purpose, it feels like it would be cumbersome even if I could figure it out.
In the languages I’m used to I could create a list at the beginning of the function, and when I want to add a message I could just do
message_list.append("A thing happened");, and at the end of the function I would return the list. I’m hoping to find a solution at that level of simplicity.
What technique is appropriate for this situation?
