How to change the message/comment text color in Max5?

August 8, 2008 | 3:49 pm

I am not able to change the font color of messages and comment boxes programmatically. There are no attributes in the object reference and the behavior does not correspondend with the "Common Box Attributes" reference.

Am I doing something basically wrong?

Many thanks, I haven’t seen the alpha value mentioned anywhere and did not need it here. Works now of course.

To your question in the patch: I did not know the field-dragging trick. The first try gave me that:
textcolor $1 :-)
(without the smily)
but the second try would at least have told me that Max expects more parameters:
bgcolor $1 $2 $3 $4
