Confirmbox


    Sep 09 2008 | 8:40 pm
    MAX completely lacks a simple confirmbox. Like: Do you really want to do this? Yes/No. There was one for MAC OS 9 in Maxobjects.com but not anymore and not for OSX/UB. Anybody an idea?

      It's pretty easy to roll your own abstraction for this in Max.

      For instance? Like the proposed dialog with y or n answer? Not something more OS-like?
      Would help to create something, because aalert is only mac, so no cross-platform application with that.

      create a bpatcher. show/hide via scripting messages to thispatcher (as one example).

      It depends on your definition of OS-like, I guess.
      No help file.

      My definition of OS-like would be something that a user can handle without any extra thinking as if he was handling his normal operating system. Lots of alternatives are possible, but I think software that confirms itself to the rules of the OS is always easier to handle, faster to learn and more fool-proof for the user. So, always something to aim at.

      hi,
      i made a cross platform alert box pop-up object which uses the OS message box function, so this may be what you're after. I didn't test it very thoroughly yet.

      Works fine on my MAC. So, see what it does in windows. Thx a lot.

      Any way to change the displayed icon from the default Max5 icon?

      I am happy it doesn't exist, any software using this sort of UI is usually annoying... ;-) But nobody would stop you creating it, even Max would allow it, as you can pop up windows to your liking. Have a look at pcontrol, and create a patcher in any design of your liking...
