standalone object question

January 16, 2012 | 10:01 pm

hello max proffesionals,
i found no explanation for the option "Make Application Subfolder Search Path",
wich can be set at the inspector of the standalone object.

i have found no information in the reference or the forum.
perhaps someone from cycling74 can help ?
thanks !

all subfolders are in the searchpath automatically.

Actually the ref does mention it:

thank you for the responses.
now i get it !
the option at the inspector "Make Application Subfolder Search Path" is equal to the attribute "usesearchpath", which is in the ref.

this setting always confused me until recently. I used to think it added the whole of the application bundle folder as a search patch …e.g.

/Applications/MyApp.app/

but actually it makes the folder the app is in part of the search path, i.e.

/Applications/

it would be great, if we could set the "usesearchpath" attribute in authoring mode. i tryed the "project" options in max6, which works well in authoring mode, but if i make an standalone application some meda were not found. especially java classes and javascripts.

my dream is making an application without copying files manualy into the package …

it would also be great, if be we could build an application with one click.
without choose collective or application.
perhaps 2 seperate menu entries. one for collective, one for application.
personally, i never build a collective.
