Midiout-like external

    Feb 15 2006 | 10:44 am
    Hi list !
    I'm working on an external that detects JazzMutant Lemurs on the
    local network. So far everything is good, except I would like to have
    it work like the midiout external in Max : one could double-click on
    it, and select an output to which the incoming messages would be sent
    (in my case, a list of IPs or lemur names would be displayed). Is
    that at all possible or do I need access to some private API ?
    Thanks in advance for your answers.

      The API for editing windows is documented in the SDK.
      Anything beyond that (like the funky lists pattr displays or popup
      menus) is likely to make use of the API from the host OS. This is
      always an option.
      Polling IP addresses available on a LAN is almost certainly something
      where you'll have to deal with the host API. Or use Java. For Lemur
      names I would venture that you'll have to program this yourself.
      Good luck,
