Max5 transparent patcher window

April 28, 2008 | 12:29 pm

Hello,
I’m looking after this parameter wich makes a patcher window going
transparent.
So is there a param in the patch inspector wich enable me to make the
patcher window appear and disappear…
Or is it just a thing i’m dreaming of since David show us that during
these FNM forum in Stuttgart???
Cheers
Hubert

Hmm, Alpha Channel doesn’t seem to effect the entire patcher.
I don’t know.

It does it you make the window floating. But have you ever seen a transparent document window?

The window should have no title, like bellow. Have fun!

Is this a trick question?

Yes, now, thanks to Emmanuel, very nice, this will be abuse a lot to
confuse newbies and masters alike…

While creating the floating max object (how beautiful — Fisher Price has a long way to go) I noticed an issue with screen redraw when moving the value for alpha between two specific values. Trying to pinpoint, I discovered an issue with float and the select message. See patch below, which combines the two issues.

Also, clocking the toggle sometimes selects the window underneath –
depending on the patcher’s alpha, perhaps. I feel like I’m playing a
1970′s video game.
