detect when user closes subpatch window

    Feb 05 2011 | 8:37 pm
    I'd like to find out when a user closes a subpatch window so that I can turn off a few gui features to improve overall performance.
    Thanks much!

      basically [closebang], and in your case probably with a [send].

      Thanks Roman, that worked to detect the window close, but loadbang does not work to detect opening because all of the subpatch loadbangs happen when the parent is loaded. I created a button that opens the subpatch window using [pcontrol], and set the "MySubpatchIsOpen"flag too. I hide the subpatch so that the user can't double-click to open, thereby bypassing the setting of the flag.

      [active] is great! I had never discovered it. Thanks so much for the info.

      be warned [active] can be very tricky during programming. whenever you change something releated to it, you have to restart the patcher.
