A way to detect user changing window size?

October 5, 2011 | 10:32 pm

Is there any method to detect when a user changes the size of the window by either maximizing or dragging?

I know of "window getsize" into "thispatcher" and I could just send a bang to that with a metro or something, but I feel like that would be a waste. Is there any way Max can report the size change?

I don’t think this is possible without polling. What do you want to do with this information?

I’m making a standalone app, it would be nice to be able to have controls move around or get larger as the window size changes.
