controlling "Quit" in standalones and menubar….

I’ve struggled with this issue before, and have come up with mildly satisfactory solution, but for a current project, it’s not really satisfying.
I need to run my own “Quit” process in a standalone, which is sort of possible using menubar, but on OSX, there’s the “Quit” in the ApplicationName menu (e.g. Max/MSP menu) which will bypass any “Quit” that I put in the File menu with menubar.
On windows, I can “disable” the default Quit in File with a message to menubar, which results in an unsightly dual “Quit” (the disabled default + the Quit I create in menubar), but at least it functions. However, if the user clicks the “contatining” window’s “X” to close the app, then my all-important “Quit” routine is bypassed. (I guess that is a separate question – can I disable the application window?).

SO those are my issues that I’d LOVE to be able to workaround…is possible?

Thanks,

Peter.

Hi Peter,

Will closebang not work for whatever you are trying to do at quit
time? I’ve never tried to use it in a standalone, not sure if it
works the same as in a Max/MSP based patch…

oh, sure, do it the easy way! yes, it looks like this will work pretty well, actually, using a closebang in my main interface.

auto quitting a standalone usualy just chrashes the runtime for me in mac os classic as well as 10.4
