thispatcher request

Request for an option to minimize patcher windows.
Maybe a message like “window zoom -1″ to [thispatcher].

or “window zoom -2″ to scramble all objects on top of each other and
zoom it to one pixel…

seriously, isn’t it easier to just drag the window to your prefered size
than programming a message?
I just guess you know about the set origin and restore origin commands
in the View menu….

Here’s the best definition I could find:
“Reducing a window to an icon, or a label at the bottom of the screen,
allowing another window to be viewed.”
http://www2.cheshire.gov.uk/SOCIAL/crossservice/Paris/glossa ry.htm

It seems a bit ridiculous to drag a window into that state. This
operation is one click down, one click up. Standard fare.

would be a nice idea for an abstraction object mb.
simply close the window, or move it to 5000 5000,
and have a little “button” subwindow opening
instead on the screen, which bongs back the
original state when you click it.

Thats of course an option for a workaround. But I would still be very
interested in a way to minimize patcher windows to the Dock. (That’s on
Mac OS X).

What I’m looking for is an option to minimize patcher windows to the
Dock (Mac OS X), the same way it’s doing it when you click this yellow
button in the title bar.
Hope this clarifies my request.

there should be an applescript-command to achieve this, no?

Hi,

Sorry to wake up this old thread.
Has someone found a nice way to minimize a window since then?
(something that would work for both osx and windows)

A mac only way is to use applescript via the [shell] external. This message will do it, although I think you do also need to enable access for assistive devices in the universal access tab of system preferences if it isn’t already.

osascript -e ‘tell application “System Events”‘ -e ‘click menu item “Minimize” of menu “Window” of menu bar item “Window” of menu bar “1″ of application process “MaxMSP”‘ -e ‘end tell’
