invisible buttons


    Feb 09 2010 | 10:50 am
    In max 4 the pictctrl object used to present itself as a transparent button before you added an image to it, now in max 5 it seems to provide you with a generic image. I really want a transparent button for my project, I created a transparent .png file in photoshop and tried using that as the image file which worked for a while but has now turned jet black proving this method to be fairly unstable. Any work arounds / objects / options that I am missing? Many thanks!

      [ubutton]
      can track mouse location if you set the right Inspector attribute.
      Also handy if you want the empty spots of your patch to do something when clicked: put the [ubutton] at the bottom of everything and make it the same size as your patch.
