Global message / very easy question


    Jul 19 2015 | 5:02 pm
    Maybe I go crazy, this is so easy, but it doesn't work here. What did I do wrong? The size of my patcher-window doesn't change.
    Thanx Peer
    Max Patcher
    In Max, select New From Clipboard.

      Hi,
      It looks like you are creating a message but not sending it anywhere.
      If I wanted to change the patcher window size I would use the thispatcher object
      Max Patcher
      In Max, select New From Clipboard.
      For example try:
      Press F1 on thispatcher for more info. Hope this helps and apologies if I misunderstood your problem.

      thanx a lot for the answer. yes, I do send...directly to max (global message)...that's why you write ";max" - but I don't get any visible feedback. If I check the default height with ";max getdefaultpatcherheight whatsoever", the value changed, but I can't see the change. That's my problem.

      Hi jazzisfaction,
      the message you send is ok, but it is not affecting your current patch's window. It changes the default patch sizes, meaning probably the newly created ones(?) will be created with 200x200 high and width.
      Either way, it is not the correct message to alter your current patch's dimensions. To do that, follow APS502's suggestion.

      Hey Nik, thanx. I know all that and I'm familiar with 'thispatcher'. But even if I open a new patcher window after having send the global message, I don't get the new dimensions. I just ask myself in which case u get the new dimensions, if you send a ";max setdefaultpatcherheight" message.
