'bringtofront' with thispatcher in presentation mode


    Jul 16 2013 | 5:45 am
    Is there a way to use 'bringtofront' with thispatcher in presentation mode?
    Any method of moving objects backwards and forwards in presentation mode would be much appreciated.

      'front' message is supposed to put it on the front. But : http://cycling74.com/forums/topic/front-message-to-thispatcher-is-not-working/

      No.. that doesn't seem to work. Thank you though.

      If you're trying to simply change what objects are visible or not depending, you can use the message hidden $1. with thispatcher: script sendbox objectscriptingname hidden $1
      Works well in conjunction with coll when you want to hide and show pages / tabs etc. not sure what you're going for.

      No, I'm layering objects with transparency. I need to make the object editable, bringing forward whilst keeping the other objects visible in the background.
      Thanks though.

      How about using ignoreclick?

      The layers are semi-transparent so they appear partially revealed (70%) unless they're moved to the front.

      This does it, in or out of presentation mode.
