Bring to Front/Back Command

    Sep 29 2013 | 2:01 pm
    Hi guys
    Is there any way to control the 'bring to front' and 'bring to back' commands via message? Rather than using the ctrl shift F/B?
    It is for two fpic, which are positioned on top of each other
    all the best

      I don't think so. Depending on what you need to achieve however - it might be possible by using the fpic transparency (alpha) attribute(?)

      you can, using [thispatcher] it's in the [p moreScripting] subpatch from the helpfile

      Hey thanks for that
      I tried connecting your method to the two fpics, but I had no luck in getting them to work. I was a bit unsure on the actual type of connection, whether the thispatcher was required or not so I made two versions.
      If you could take a peek that would be great, thanks

      this is not how it works : [thispatcher] needs a target object which has a scripting name - set in the object's inspector
