building app awithout max window??

How stupid can you get…
I want to build my patch (yet another stepseq but with looper and chord-sheet) as an application, but cannot find a way to leave the MAX-window closed upon starting. And nowhere in the writings I can find the solution of this stupid little problem. So…anybody?

the [standalone] object is your friend. Instantiate it in your patch, then get info on it. Check out the Max5 help window. At the bottom there is a link that says something like “sharing patches with others”. I think standalone is mentioned in there (not checking right now).

You can remove Max window with [standalone] if my memory’s good.
“commande i” allows you tp access to the inspector.

Not sure but have you tried to send a message contains:

max hidemenubar

May work but I haven’t tried in a standalone.

The trick is in the inspector of “standalone”. That life can be that easy…

Thanks again.
