Max5 transparent patcher window


    Apr 28 2008 | 12:29 pm
    Hello,
    I'm looking after this parameter wich makes a patcher window going
    transparent.
    So is there a param in the patch inspector wich enable me to make the
    patcher window appear and disappear...
    Or is it just a thing i'm dreaming of since David show us that during
    these FNM forum in Stuttgart???
    Cheers
    Hubert

      Hmm, Alpha Channel doesn't seem to effect the entire patcher.
      I don't know.

      It does it you make the window floating. But have you ever seen a transparent document window?

      The window should have no title, like bellow. Have fun!

      Is this a trick question?

      Yes, now, thanks to Emmanuel, very nice, this will be abuse a lot to
      confuse newbies and masters alike...

      While creating the floating max object (how beautiful -- Fisher Price has a long way to go) I noticed an issue with screen redraw when moving the value for alpha between two specific values. Trying to pinpoint, I discovered an issue with float and the select message. See patch below, which combines the two issues.

      Also, clocking the toggle sometimes selects the window underneath -
      depending on the patcher's alpha, perhaps. I feel like I'm playing a
      1970's video game.
