I don't want status window in Collective!

Hello all @ Cycling74
Is there a way to setup a collective/stand alone so that the MAX status window does NOT pop up upon loading the patch(es)?
Thanks a lot,
Max

BTW, Max 5 will be AWESOME!!!!! Looks like alot of great thinking/work went into it!

Uncheck the “Status window visible at startup” option, in the
inspector of the standalone object.

And in the messages to max portion of the documentation you will find one that removes the status window from the window menu.

ej,
i am actually a bit confused by what you mean as “inspector”….I thought inspector just meant apple/i clicking on a object box to get its info. What is meant by inspector for the stand-alone, and how do I access this?

“commande i” on a [standalone] object gives an inspector window where you will find an option about : “Status window visible at startup”

im curious, is there a way to make the splash screen for a stand alone hold longer?

is a stand alone collective (.app) the same as a stand alone object? I made a standalone .app from a few patches called “sqr” and then went to a new max patch and created a new object called “sqr” , ended up getting “no such object.”…..

NEVERMIND!
Thanks for the help, y’all. I figured it out

Axiom, I’m not sure about your splash screen. I’m sure someone else can give a hand, though

what did you end up figuring out though? I was a bit confused at what others had said as well.

to summarize, there’s 2 things:
- add a standalone object, open the inspector of that object, and
uncheck “Status Window Visible at Startup”
- with a max message (; max maxinwmenu 0), you can remove the Status
item in the Windows menu (so you can’t access to the Max window after
launching your standalone).

Cheers,
ej
