floating window that still allows data input

howdy folks,

just a quick question on floating windows.
im making a small typing patch that shows data being input whilst using other programs.
but the one problem i have is once you come off of max runtime, using the other things it stops the data.
is there any way around this?

i have floating and the other [thispatcher] methods. but nothing currently works

many thanks

if you want to fetch input data from the keyboard/trackpad or an USB-Device
while another program is active [hi] can do this.

totally forgot about [hi]

and if your keyboard isn’t recognized by [hi], do a search for “mxj.autobot” and it will do this too, plus other fun things…though it’s more work to get it started than [hi], it should work on any platform that has Java, and with any keyboard.
