Initializing values in the ControlP5 button library

In the below code snippet I find the “.setValue(0)” line triggers the “BrowseOpenOutputFile()” event handler.This caused an undesired file browser dialog (called in the event handler code) to appear at sketch startup. Is there a way to set the value without triggering the event during initialization?

jControl = new ControlP5(this);
    // .setValue(0)  // Not called because it triggers the event handler
    .setLabel("Open Output File")
    .setSize( 100, 20 )
    .setColor( DataToggleColors )

Were you able to resolve this issue?

I’m not certain that I understand what you are trying to do. Are you trying to call setValue(0) on a ControlP5.Button? Why? This just passes 0 to your callback function. If you don’t want to do this, don’t call Button.setValue().

For examples of how this is used, see the Examples in the ControlP5 Button documentation.

Call .setValue(0) before you register the callback.

@micycle you mean, call setValue() directly on the ControlP5 instance? Why?

I mean calling it on the button (which is what his code is doing now).
