*.bpanelz are wrapped *.panels with their ‘resources’ (images, fonts etc.)
and are saved differently – see save options: export binary, i think (forget..)
all of those sometimes lengthily-named (attributes, i now call them, but)
properties have some use, at some point, depending on how deep you want to
go. for now, just use what you have a use for, is my advice. most will be
syntax? code, etc., i don’t know j*ck s**t about programming, tbh, as
any of the old hands here will confirm ! i get by bodging copies of
what other people have done, and after much headscratching you can
figure out some useful ..’stuff’.i don’t think i could do step1
without copying and amending. i have studied and tweaked methods
in other panels until i get them to do what i need. i’ve looked at
online tutorials on Lua, but that was less help, as it didn’t refer
directly to the thing i wanted to move on with: Ctrlr. but it’s
really cool to learn something, and get something to work.
generally, i’ve messed around with little side ‘panels’, focusing
on getting that thing to work, before working it into my main
project. lots of detours. and i’m still not confident i can ‘get’
a full patch dump, and send it to screen controls, or build a
patch to send to the device. slowly working up to that. that is
about handling tables and getting them to emit, and concatenate
bytes, etc etc.
basically: it’s hard to work on a UI while you’re considering
how to learn to do that: doing several things at once when
you have one brain that tends to monotask when you’re focusing.
so i’d suggest keeping things simple for now. if you have the
lexicon responding to sysex satisfactorily, go with that.
worry about the Lua only for what you need it for, get a
working panel done, and make it more sophisticated later,
if you feel you want to.
