Mouse on the second screen….

July 24, 2007 | 10:52 pm

I’ve created a window that I make go fullscreen on my second monitor. I’d like to not accidentally have the mouse display if I go over too far on it. Is there any way to control this in jitter?

Other programs that take over the second monitor do not seem to even allow me to go there, but I’d be happy just to have the cursor behind if possible.

Thanks!
Rick

look at the pupdate message to max, documented in the max46topics pdf.

Are you suggesting that I keep track of where the pointer is and if it tries to go into an area outside the main window that I should use pupdate to bring it back into the main window?

You can also hide the cursor if it goes off the screen with a combination of mousestate, jit.displays and the message "; max hidecursor" and "showcursor".

Look at jit.fullscreen in the ejies. It does that and as it’s an
abstraction, you can modify it easily for your own purpose.

installed them , looks great

it asked for installing shortcuts

had to put them back by using systemprefs

Sorry about that. It always sounded like it’s an Apple issue, which
makes that you can’t edit the shortcut with the system preference
afterward. You can modify the AddShorctut2Max.command and add your
own, it’s pretty straightforward.
