I would like to have a slider with a starting value/position at the 50% position, so for example if the slider range is 1 - 100, then the starting value and position would be 50. I have used a bang to a message to the slider to set the starting value.
This works fine but requires manual input on my part to set the value of the slider by clicking the bang button. I would prefer have this happen automatically, essentially reset the patch user interface controls to defaults when I run the patch. I tried an abstraction and use loadbang to trigger this routine
end of abstraction
slider - main patch
But this did not output anything when the main patch runs.
how would I get something to run automatically in the main patch when the patch executes?
