Auto-close patch

    Apr 21 2006 | 3:33 pm
    Hi, Does anyone know of a method to automatically close a patch remotely on a windows system. I know that the curtains object can shutdown a computer, but is there one for just closeing patch?
    thanks, wes

      I used a Mac - but i assume PC's have the 'thispatcher' object - you could check out the 'dispose' command.

      message dispose to [thispatcher] object. You may need to send the clean message before (to avoid the "woud you like to save the patch?" question). If you want to quit max, there's also the ": max quit" possibility.
