Idle Mousing with LCD while using ignoreClick

Hi, I’m trying to use LCD to get the mouse position over a multislider.
Unfortunately I can’t edit the multislider with the mouse without setting the LCD to ‘ignore click 1′.
When setting ‘ignore click 1′ I don’t get an idle mouse output from LCD.

Is there a way to have both?

A kludge, but… how about ‘pensize 0 0′?

Thanks for your reply. That prevents from drawing on the LCD but unfortunately still doesn’t allow me to edit the multislider with my mouse.

it’s a sort of a hack, but you could actually use the coordinates that you receive from the [lcd] to set the [multislider]‘s values from within Max:

[lcd] => get mouse coordinates => use [zmap] to transform them into (x, y) pairs => set [multislider] values using these (x, y) data

Hope that helps,

I have the same problem: idle mousing doesn’t work with ignoreclick…
Is it really impossible to do???
Please, any help is very much appreciated
