how do i minimize a max patch window from within the patch?

hey, i looked at thispatcher, pcontrol and max messages, seems there’s
no way to minimize a window.

You could use applescript. Are you using a mac?

i’m using a win 7 pc.

@macciza: i want a standalone max patch to be active but not viewable to save some space on the screen. but from time to time it has to be viewable
to make some changes.

i would like to offer a "start minimized" option.

thanks for your replys so far

then this becomes a feature request to c74. i can not remove the titlebar
of my standalone app in windows because there’s no "max" way to minimize the window. There are ways to close or maximize (fullscreen) the window
so why not to minimize?

or are there more undocumented messages to [thispatcher] like "topmost"?
