Object that opens another .maxpat file?

Hi there,

This is something I’ve been experimenting with for a couple of days, to no avail. Again, I’ve done a lot of googling and looked through the tutorials, but without success.

Is there ANY way at all to trigger Max to open another .maxpat file, whilst you’re in a patch that’s already open? That is to say, I want to get to the end of a sequence of audio triggers, then using a MIDI signal, open another patch (but NOT a subpatch) once that sequence has played out.

Is this an odd concept? Is it possible?

Would be much obliged for any suggestions.

Look at the helpfile for [bpatcher] object

Something like this maybe:

– Pasted Max Patch, click to expand. –

or:

whoops!

– using message to max, but you need to close the file via a message to max too, otherwise the reference (foo) argument persists and you can’t re-open.

Thanks Terry! Now I know a new way to crash Max6:
open a patch with the openfile message to Max,
then close it by clicking in the close button in the window bar,
and sending the closefile message.

Max 6.0.8, X.6.8
