open reference page

    Hi,
    I have written a patch which uses max time value syntax.
    I would like to have a button in my patch which opens the "Time Value Syntax" page in the max reference.

      Try banging a message box like this "; max launchbrowser http://www.cycling74.com/docs/max5/vignettes/core/maxtime_syntax.html". If you wan't it available offline then save the html page somewhere in your app and format the path to it using [sprintf].

      You may use [jweb] as well.

      You can use the showdoc message to max, as demonstrated in the line~ help file.

      much better solution, thanks
      how annoying they don't document this on the "Controlling Max with Messages" page!
      also, from line~ help file, would be really useful for me to open globaltransport. but I can't work out how this is done.
