active state

April 27, 2010 | 11:21 am

Is there a JavaScript method capable of querying the active state of a parent patcher? Say, I have a bpatcher and want to know whether its patcher window is frontmost, but don’t want to create an active object in the parent patcher.

No offense, but this sounds like poor encapsulation to me. Why not let the bpatcher support an active message and let users issue it from the parent patcher?

I had the Max for Idiots kind of person in mind. That’s why…

Actually, there was a time when there was no JavaScript at all, and my patches were all running just fine…

Try checking the current filepath against the frontmost filepath as shown below.

lh

max.frontpatcher.filepath == this.patcher.filepath
