Making a button to open a patcher

April 5, 2013 | 1:35 pm

Hi,

I want to put in my own image which can then be clicked to open a patcher window. Is this at all possible? I tried putting an inlet into the patcher and then putting a button into the patcher object but this did not open it. I also looked into using pictctrl but every time I input the image (which is png and within the folder of the patch) it cut off half the image.

Any help would be much appreciated!

about [pictctrl], take a look at the help and reference files – there are specific guidelines for using an image and there’s a reason it cuts of half the image.

also check Max Interface Tutorials 1 and 2 – should give you a lot of help and ideas on what you’re trying to do! :)
