Can anyone offer some pointers on GUI development?
(Tutorials, useful Objects and basic/guiding principles)
I've never tried it and i'm fairly new to Max/MSP, having only done a one year course using 4.3 which was mainly aimed at audio processing, and i'm completely new to Jitter.
I finally made the investment a couple of weeks ago, (i'm now the proud owner of Max/MSP 4.5 and Jitter 1.5, Hooray!), and would like to develop some GUIs, (using Win XP), for some of the patches i developed during my course...with a view to developing them into Pluggo plugs at a later stage.
Obviously i've got another massive learning curve ahead of me, (not to mention learning Jitter which at the moment seems overwhelming), but if anyone can point me in the right starting direction i'd massively appreciate it! I'm not looking to create anything of amazing quality, just the basics, but as i want to develop them as plugs, efficiency and compatibility are of prime importance.
In truth, i'm unsure where to even start and the glaringly obvious things will no doubt come as a revelation to me...so please don't hold back from stating the obvious.
I have some experience with Java so maybe the Swing API might be the route to take?
Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance,
