Hiding 'Windows'

Hello,

Does anybody know how to hide and show things on MAXMSP via the click of a button. I DONT mean lock the window when your building the thing– what I am doing is building a mixer with different channels, when the user presses the ‘FX’ button on a channel, a set of objects appear related to that channel (im going to make it pop up like a window). Respectivley, I want it to hide any other objects related to that channel.

Thanks

Steve

Hi,

check documentation for the thispatcher object, in particular the
“front” message. There’s also one to hide the window.

Best,
Trond
