where do I find [thispatcher] COMPLETE reference page

Please, I already wasted half an hour browsing MAX documentation, looking for full list of the “nomenu” etc kind of stuff that patchers/THISPATCHER objects do accept.

In the reference it says:

See “Patcher Messages” and “Scripting Messages” discussion.

while the “Patcher messages” and “Scripting messages” are getting underlined onmouseover, I assume that they should be some links or something, but clicking on them (i’m on windows) doesn’t do anything.
searching for “patcher messages” in the HELP doesn’t give any useful results also.
searching forums gives me only partial information.

please, Where do I find the full list?

thanks

here on macosx 1068 max 613 :
the detailed description of all the messages you can INPUT to [thispatcher] is in the “Output” section of [thispatcher] reference. As a result, the messages beginning by “window” aren’t detailed at all in reference.
I can confirm “Patcher Messages” and “Scripting Messages” don’t link to anything.
As you have discovered, the reference is incomplete. The window messages are detailed in the help patcher though. Here you can find the correct syntax (window flags nomenu).

Bump.
Presumably the files that “Patcher Messages” and “Scripting Messages” are supposed to link to do exist somewhere?
Didn’t there also used to be a scripting tutorial somewhere? All i can find is stuff relating to javascript(ing)…
Cheers
