floating transparent window


    Jun 27 2008 | 11:46 am
    I've made a floating transparent window that doesn't float! The window doesn't float when the title is showing either. Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong? I've also forgotten how to send a message to thispatcher to close a window and can't find it in the documentation. anyone?

      It is floating here (Max503 under OSX53) but you should remove the toolbar.

      wclose although I can't find anything in Max5.0.3's documentation about this message

      Well, its kind of floating for me, but gets hidden behind other windows and doesn't stay in the front. Am i right in thinking it should remain in the front? It used to in max 4.
      I have removed the toolbar here, but in pasting the patch to the forum it automatically appears again. I don't know what command to issue to get rid of it other than in the patcher inspector. I tried 'toolbar 0' but it didn't work the way 'presentation 1' works...
      I'm using Mac 10.4.11 and Max502 - which I see you have updated - I hadn't realised that the new version had been released.
      thanks

      It seems that when you use notitle, then it is not really floating anymore. But this behavior is the same with Max4.

      I know 503 is released because Zip wrote about it earlier today, but I don't think there was any official announcement.
      Good luck...
