Creating a new view of a bpatcher dynamically?

    Dec 06 2010 | 3:11 am
    Is it somehow possible to dynamically create a new view of a bpatcher?
    I've tried:
    (open) | [pcontrol] | [bpatcher]
    This doesn't seem to work. I've also checked the [bpatcher] reference but couldn't find a message for it.

      nope that does not work, you must open the patcher from disk as subpatcher in parallel and use this copy for a windowed version.

      But I would like a view of the one that's already in my patch hosting the [bpatcher], no way of doing that?

      Just place a [thispatcher] in your bpatcher with an inlet. outside the bpatcher place a message with offset x and offset y. Now you can change the part of the bpatcher you want to see. You can find a detailed description of this in the helpfile if bpatcher.

      Thank you.I already knew I could do this and it actually doesn't solve the problem, I would like to see the patch as a whole.
      I guess it is just not possible?

      You can change the visible portion of the bpatcher with an offset message to a thispatcher object in the bpatcher's subpatch, AND you can change the size of your bpatcher with a script size message to a thispatcher object in the parent patch. If I understand correctly what you want to do, this should demonstrate how.
