Idle Mousing with LCD while using ignoreClick


    Mar 13 2013 | 9:32 pm
    Hi, I'm trying to use LCD to get the mouse position over a multislider. Unfortunately I can't edit the multislider with the mouse without setting the LCD to 'ignore click 1'. When setting 'ignore click 1' I don't get an idle mouse output from LCD.
    Is there a way to have both?

      A kludge, but... how about 'pensize 0 0'?

      Thanks for your reply. That prevents from drawing on the LCD but unfortunately still doesn't allow me to edit the multislider with my mouse.

      Hi,
      it's a sort of a hack, but you could actually use the coordinates that you receive from the [lcd] to set the [multislider]'s values from within Max:
      [lcd] => get mouse coordinates => use [zmap] to transform them into (x, y) pairs => set [multislider] values using these (x, y) data
      Hope that helps, Ádám
