matrixctrl custom buttons

May 17, 2013 | 1:46 am

Hi,
is there anybody who knows how to create custom buttons for matrixctrl? I’ve seen MatrixDefaultCell.pct and I tried also with jKnobMan… but without succes, max always visualizes just a portion of the buttons… the documentation is not very clear about… is there a predefined size for the buttons? and there is a way to resize the matrix?
Will be nice to have an example of matrix with buttons on-off and how to get there.

ciao

thanks a lot karrrlo,

"Dahl-guigraphics" is really useful.
I’ve already seen the vido tutorial, didn’t help to understand if I have a problem of size or whatever it is.

the checkboxes in the Inspector like "has inactive image" and "has image mask" are sometimes the culprits…
