Yeah very useful. I don't have occasion to make a standalone patch as everything is either for myself, or openly shared, but I've saved in on the offchance that I want to build something contained like that. Great work!
Glad that it's helpful - you won't get *all* the info that I covered in person, as I expounded on a few things that are not in the slides, but the bulk of it you now have. Happy to answer questions as best as I can for those that couldn't be there to ask them in person!
Thank you so much for such a useful article. I've now been able to add custom icons and an About section to my standalone which I've been wanting to know how to do for a while.
One thing I'd like to ask though...
I noticed that in your 'pre-slickened', original menus your app's name is showing instead of 'Max Runtime' in the first menu, ie., 'Hide my-cool-app' and 'Quit my-cool-app'.
I understand how to use the script in [menuitem] to make the menu display 'About app name', but would really like to know how to make my app name replace 'Max Runtime' in the rest of the menu items. I've been struggling trying to find information on this. Could you please point me in the right direction?
Well what do you know.... I'm assuming you're on Max 6? I ask because I just tried on Max 6, and see that I cannot get it to do "Quit my-cool-app" either, but when I revert to Max 5, it works just fine. I will report it to Cycling.
