get patcher to fill entire screen?

I’m trying to get my patcher window to fill the entire screen, including the menbar area. I’ve managed to get the menubar to disappear, but nothing I try will make my window fill the menubar space (window size, fullscreen, nomenu…). Instead I just see my desktop BG in the little strip at the top.

Also sending “window size 0 0 1440 900, window exec” makes the window extend 50 pixels or so past the bottom of the screen (i’m guessing the exact height of the menubar).

I’m on OS X Lion. How can I get the window to actually start at 0 0 top left? Thanks!

OK, got it working. For some reason, “fullscreen 1″ was not working in conjunction with my other thispatcher commands in a single message with commas. But sending the message alone works.

size 0 0 1440 900 will work fine when you hide the menubar prior to resizing.
