I have a patcher inside a bpatcher object. I need 5 of these together in my main patch, but they take too much space on screen. So I want to make a tabbed version of it. I want to select "1 2 3 4 5" from the top, and the corresponding UI will show up in the same space.
There should be numerous ways to do this I guess, any suggestions on one?
I tried to use thispatcher object within bpatcher and sent the message "front" to it but it does not seem to work with bpatchers. Another option would be to arrange 5 of them in a bpatcher and using the offset message. But I have a feeling that scrolling with offset will screw the playback, as there are many objects in it. If you have any other solutions in mind I'll be glad to hear.
The ideal would be I think, is to be able to hide and show bpatchers. Is there any way to hide an object(bpatcher) with a message?
