Getting an object's position


    Apr 12 2007 | 1:29 am
    Hello folks.
    I wonder if there is a way to get information about an object's placement (in pixel coordinates) relative to the window ? Or relative to the screen for that matter? For example by naming the object, and sending a script message to thispatcher?
    Also, I get the impression there are more scripting messages available than is documented in the manual. If so, where (apart from looking at patchers as text) can I learn about it?
    Thanks in advance.

      name the object, and use jasch's posit external to query it.

      If you want to avoid naming the objects, have a look to "patchdescribe-example.pat" in max's examples folder.

      Thanks!
      I think I'll dip my toes into javascript to see if that might give me what I want.
