Following code fragment:
t_max_err myErr = MAX_ERR_NONE; tMyObj* me = object_alloc(gObjectClass); Object* myPatcher; post("%s(): try to hide patcher", __func__); object_obex_lookup(me, gensym("#P"), &myPatcher); myErr = patcherview_set_visible(jpatcher_get_toppatcher(myPatcher), false); post(" patcherview_set_visible() returned %ld", myErr);
patcherview_set_visible() Returns -1 (MAX_ERR_GENERIC) and doesn’t hide the main patcher window (which I was hoping to do).
This is called from the object’s instantiation method. (As the call to object_alloc() sort of indicates.-)
gObjectClass is a properly allocated t_class.
Is there any way for an object to hide its top-level patcher (or any patcher)? I also tried jpatcher_set_rect() with an offscreen rect with no love (but it at least returns MAX_ERR_NONE).
In this case I just want to hide the top-level patcher when it’s in a standalone, and only then during initialization. Once initialization is finished it gets put back onscreen. As it is, it gets covered by a splash screen, but there a couple of seconds with the top-level patcher on screen before the splash gets drawn. Any ideas?
I never thought I’d want to do something like this,-
Right, I hadn’t looked into the patcherview API. But still, if it doesn’t work or crashes that’s sort of a deal breaker;-
Some more research, and it looks like I’ll eventually have to implement one of Ben’s suggestions in < http://www.cycling74.com/forums/topic.php?id=14793>.
Still it would be nice to have some way to hide a window.
