In the attached minimal example, nothing happens. At 1 second into performance instrument 1 is activated. Instr 1’s job is to use the
chnset opcode to send the identifier
tablenumber(1) on the identchannel
table-id. That should make the gentable widget display the lfo waveform. Only it doesn’t work.
Tellingly, updating a different identifier in the exact same manner - e.g. replacing
tablebackgroundcolour(200,200,200) - does work. That is, instr 1 seems to have no problem updating the background colour or some other identifier of the gentable widget, just not the
Another thing to note is that by including
tablenumber(1) in the Cabbage code at the top of the file, the f-table displays fine, but still cannot be changed dynamically from csound using the identchannel.
My goal is to be able to use a line like
chnset sprintf("tablenumber(%d)", giLfo), "table-id"
to be able to mostly avoid dealing with real table numbers.
