IDE and autocomplete with Javascript in Max , How to

    Sep 15 2017 | 2:04 pm
    Hi everyone, When i normally code in Visual studio with my IDE or with sublime text 3. I have really nifty autocomplete function, as i type matching functions and methods appear and coding becomes slightly easier than it was before. So my question is this. How do i get this to work in Max ? or more importantly, how do i get my IDE (lets say sublime text 3 ) to know whats available in Max javascript ? I'm on windows 7 , max 7. Still wish there was a clear tutorial for this... Any and all advice welcome !

      I don't know about the IDE's but these tutorial videos helped me out a bit with Javascript inside Max, maybe it is of some use to you

      Also have you read all the Javascript tutorials in the Reference documents? From reading some previous posts it sounds like the js patch you want to create needs to be able to without changing formatting to input strings, store strings in arrays, then output all strings together as a shader file, it sounds possible.

      Hi Bxne, thanks for the tips ! I'll check out the videos and I noticed that the max documentation finally got some love after so many years, so I'll check that out as well.
