controlling the cursor inside the node of your patch

how do you control the cursor inside the node box when you are using reactivison to trigger your nodes inside your patch

You can set the position of the system cursor from max with the pupdate message to Max.

From the ref.


The word pupdate, followed by two integer values that specify horizontal and vertical position, moves the mouse cursor to that global location.

I’m not sure if that’s what you need though.

Post your Max patch here and maybe someone who actually uses Reactivision might chime in and help.

for the [nodes] object, you need to send it commands to move either the nodes or the cursor, whichever you want to control:
