umenu formatting

October 24, 2010 | 4:07 pm

Hello,

I have a umenu with 32 items in it, and I would like when it is opened to display as two columns with 16 elements in each, rather than the default on column of 32 elements. I’m sure it’s simple, but I couldn’t find the answer in the documentation.

Thanks,
Eric

It’s not possible using umenu, so you would have to construct your own menu. One method would be to use a series of textbuttons inside of a named bpatcher, and another button in the main patch. When you click the button in the main patch, send the message "script show [the bpatcher's name]" to thispatcher, and when you click the button again, send the message "script hide [the bpatcher's name]." Unfortunately, it might be complicated for a dynamic number of menu items.

Thanks for the response, Anthony. It does seem a bit complicated, but I will try it.
