Making a button to open a patcher

    Apr 05 2013 | 1:35 pm
    I want to put in my own image which can then be clicked to open a patcher window. Is this at all possible? I tried putting an inlet into the patcher and then putting a button into the patcher object but this did not open it. I also looked into using pictctrl but every time I input the image (which is png and within the folder of the patch) it cut off half the image.
    Any help would be much appreciated! Nat

      about [pictctrl], take a look at the help and reference files - there are specific guidelines for using an image and there's a reason it cuts of half the image.
      also check Max Interface Tutorials 1 and 2 - should give you a lot of help and ideas on what you're trying to do! :)
