[max5] maxinwmenu message broken?

May 2, 2008 | 11:41 am

I did just build a standalone app with Max 5.0.1 (Mac OS X 10.5.2) and noticed that the
; max maxinwmenu 0
message doesn’t seem to work anymore. Or did something change that I missed in the documentation?

"Status" always appears in the window menu of the standalone. A very simple patch (loadbang -> ; max maxinwmenu) built with Max 4 and Max 5 shows the difference.

Can someone confirm this behaviour?

That’s absolutely great! Thanks a lot. Is that feature documented somewhere? Is the maxinwmenu message and the menubar object obsolete then? If it is, the Max documentation should be updated. It should be updated anyway because every day of working with Max 5 I discover things in the docs that are missing, wrong or old.

Thanks again

Editing maxinterface.json we consider part of our API and we will release information about interface files when the API documentation is released.

The menubar object is supported.

maxinwmenu will be supported in a future update.

We appreciate reports of any documentation errors.
