Hi guys

Is there any way to control the ‘bring to front’ and ‘bring to back’ commands via message? Rather than using the ctrl shift F/B?

It is for two fpic, which are positioned on top of each other

all the best

I don’t think so. Depending on what you need to achieve however – it might be possible by using the fpic transparency (alpha) attribute(?)

you can, using [thispatcher]
it’s in the [p moreScripting] subpatch from the helpfile

Hey thanks for that

I tried connecting your method to the two fpics, but I had no luck in getting them to work. I was a bit unsure on the actual type of connection, whether the thispatcher was required or not so I made two versions.

If you could take a peek that would be great, thanks

this is not how it works : [thispatcher] needs a target object which has a scripting name – set in the object’s inspector
