Midiout-like external

February 15, 2006 | 10:44 am

Hi list !
I’m working on an external that detects JazzMutant Lemurs on the
local network. So far everything is good, except I would like to have
it work like the midiout external in Max : one could double-click on
it, and select an output to which the incoming messages would be sent
(in my case, a list of IPs or lemur names would be displayed). Is
that at all possible or do I need access to some private API ?

Thanks in advance for your answers.

Regards

The API for editing windows is documented in the SDK.

Anything beyond that (like the funky lists pattr displays or popup
menus) is likely to make use of the API from the host OS. This is
always an option.

Polling IP addresses available on a LAN is almost certainly something
where you’ll have to deal with the host API. Or use Java. For Lemur
names I would venture that you’ll have to program this yourself.

Good luck,
Peter
