Feature Request: "New view of…" as a message to a bpatcher
I’m using a litlle bpatcher to represent just some presets that are in a patcher, and beside the presets, in this big patcher, there are lots of parameters, then i want to open the window of the patcher that is inside the bpatcher, i can do that but it needs to be in edit mode : ctrl-click on the bpatcher > object > New view of… and it open a new window of the patcher that is contained in the bpatcher… (i just discovered this great possibility!) …But i’d love to do that more simply, and not in edit mode!
I suppose there is no such thing as a "New view of…" message to a bpatcher ?
This would be really great.
And about the "Embed Patcher in Parent" option in bpatcher inspector :
So, even in the case of an embed patcher, there is no way to bring the window of the bpatcher’s patcher while in max locked view ? This possibility should be rather obvious, no ?
Don’t suppose you could get around this using ;max openfile file file_loaded_into_bpathcer.maxpat?
Suppose this wouldn’t work if it were embedded in patcher though. Hmmmm…
No because "openfile" would open the original file, with no link at all to the bpatcher inlets/outlets…! this is not the same instance.
While "New view of…" really open a new view of the SAME INSTANCE of the patcher that’s inside the bpatcher : When you move some data or object in this new view you see exactly the same stuff moving also in the bpatcher.
I realize that this post is 6 months old, but since there was no solution given, I’ll add this anyway:
You could put a subpatch in the bpatcher containing everything but the presets, and then send the message "front" to thispatcher in that subpatch.
