get patcher to fill entire screen?

December 3, 2011 | 11:18 pm

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.
