centring a patcher window in a standalone app


    May 02 2011 | 11:10 am
    i do this to centre a patcher window on a screen:
    but in a standalone to be distributed, it results in an ungraceful window flicker when you load the app on a different res screen to what the patch was saved on.
    does anyone have a solution for this problem?
    thanks,
    oli

      Haven't tried this Oli, but could you save the patch with off-screen coordinates, or 1 pixel large window size, and *then* do your window resizing/positioning? Just an idea, not sure if it would work.

      I tried that, but offscreen coords don't seem to work in standalones

      Maybe I will give up centering and just use a fixed offset from top right hand corner

      How about the 1 pixel wide initial screen, instead of off-screen?

      Glad to hear it! I'll probably use the same trick myself one day... ;-)
