[jweb] inside subpatcher does not load pages before showing

    Dear Friends
    I faced a small, but annoying issue - maybe you have a solution for that.
    I my project I have a [jweb] object inside subpatcher. This [jweb] will not load the webpage before I open the subpatcher (in other words: before the [jweb] will be exposed).
    So, when opening the project, I need to open the subpatcher so that jweb loads the page. However, I need this page to load "automatically" (and generate some data needed to initialise other parts of the project).
    In the patch below I isolated the problem, but in my project it looks a bit different: the subpatch opens in the tab. However, the problem is exactly the same: until I open the tab, the pages will not be loaded. I will be grateful for all your comments and ideas.
    macOS 10.14.4 | Max 8.0.5
    ps. The problem can be avoided by forcing the subpatcher to open before loading content, but for more complex projects this is not a convenient method.

      I'm facing the same issue. readfile and reload are not affecting this behavior. I'm basically using jweb for websocket communication, so no rendering. I've found this workaround: - for the patcher (call it "A") with the jweb object, set it to 'open in presentation' - in the patcher hosting patcher A (call it "B"), host it as a bpatcher instead of directly
      A bit more convenient than forcing a subpatcher open for my use case, but still cumbersome. If anyone knows a solution to this, great.

      Thank you, Sylvest. Btw. I didn't tested yet, how [jweb] works in Max 8.1.4. Maybe this issue is fixed already?

      Hi Yaniki, I can confirm this is still the behavior in 8.1.4.
