Multiple windows in plugin

Hi

Is there a way of allowing a plugin created in max to open more patcher windows?

In my patch several patchers are opened by the pcontrol object, and can’t see a way of getting these to open when working as a plugin. It’s probably a plugconfig parameter or something.

Cheers for any help!

As far as i’m aware most hosts do not like plugins opening subwindows – sometimes even opening a file browser will cause a crash.

you cannot open subpatchers within a plugin….. you can either use the offset scripting messages to bpatcher or the view options with plugconfig…..this way you can move the view to the controls you need

Cheers.
Was worried that may be the case. Looks like a bit of re-designing is in order.
