flashtxt

          flashtxt   inum, "text string"

Description

Creates a window and displays text from within instruments. Currently implemented only for Windows and Unix systems.

Initialization

inum – identifying number of the window to be created.

Performance

A window is created, identified by inum, and displays the specified text string. If the text string is replaced by a number, without double quotes, then the window is deleted. The text windows are globally numbered so different instruments can change the text. The window survives the instance of the instrument which created it.

Example

          instr 1
          flashtext  1, "Instr 1 live"  ;opens a window and displays the text
  aout    oscil      4000, 1
          out        aout
          endin

          instr 2
          flashtext  1, 0               ;closes the window
          endin
