tutorial 8

March 6, 2009 | 4:02 am

from the tutorial…Click on the checkbox to turn on the metro, then move your mouse around the screen. You will notice that the number boxes connected to the mousestate object report information as your mouse moves, and that the connected checkbox is turned on whenever you click the mouse button.

so i click the checkbox connected to the metro, and no mouse info is reported on the screen? i am on an hp tx1000 tablet pc.

any help would be greatly appreciated.

I’m confused. What is not working?

It sounds like this object, (jsui?) is using the metro as
a timing interrupt to poll the mouse state. This is a typical
max behavior that is used many ways.

It seems like you had figured out what you were doing wrong, and I was curious if you could fill me in on this. I understand the post was from a year ago, but I am having a similar difficulty. I’m running MAX on a Mac Pro, but it is having the same issue as you had all that time ago. Got any tips?
