Resize panels in presentation mode

February 24, 2013 | 11:15 am

Hello all,

I’m using Max for the display of a few slides, which I trigger remotely. Most of them are just png images inside a large fpic object, but one of them involves a panel that resizes itself dynamically (using a "size $1" message). Unfortunately I’m finding out – possibly too late – that the panel won’t respond to the size message once presentation mode is enabled. Can anyone think of a workaround for this, please?

Thank you! :)

I think you need to set the @presentation_rect attribute. IMS, the ‘size’ message is just an alias to the @patching_rect attribute.

It’s been a few years since I’ve done this, but it can be done.
