[PD] Array List View

Thanks.  That sounds like all the more reason to have this as a Pd patch 
instead.  Even if I add a little mechanism to poll the area for changes, it's 
going to be discoverable inside a subpatch.  That means if there is trouble, 
any user can open it and inspect the innards.

hi katja,I don't understand that last paragraph.  Why would you need to close the 
array list view for an audio-length array?  From what I can tell it's not "live"-- that 
is, it doesn't automatically update its values to stay in sync with the array.

Normally the list view isn't updated but I've seen cases where Pd hangs when an object writes into an array with open list view. I don't remember the exact conditions. It helped to automatically close the list view before writing again. I could dig into my test patches to find details, but it is a useful option anyhow.

 That looks good Jonathan. In current array list view the entries are grouped per 1000 and arrows let you switch groups. For 'large' arrays (say one second of audio samples) this is inconvenient. Maybe your patch approach could even provide a better solution, like the option to select a specific range.

There's also method 'arrayviewclose' which I sometimes (ab)use to close a list view from within a patch. You don't want to try update an audio array list view in real time!

I don't know.  Something like this with the guts hidden?
I didn't do the hard stuff, like handling out-of-bounds elements if the 
array isn't a multiple of ten-- it's just a prototype.
So, in that method you and katja are abusing, I can forward the arrayname 
as well as the current $0 count.  Then I can open the patch and immediately 
send a message to the relevant $0- receiver, and the patch will populate the 
value table accordingly.
And then I can get rid of all the arraylistview C/GUI code that's scattered about.

 A Pd patch with what in it?

Would you mind if this opened a Pd patch instead of a tk dialog?

Could be OK if the list is editable, like current array list view.
