opening pop-ups and controlling positions w/ max


    Apr 10 2006 | 8:53 pm
    hello.
    i'm working on a theatre project, and I'm trying to open pop-up windows in
    a specific position with max (to a secondary monitor / projector). Can
    anyone recomend a useful approach or set of objects to accomplish this?
    thanks a lot.
    owen.

      The [thispatcher] object can position windows - I've used it to pop
      up floating dialog-style windows under the mouse pointer. If you're
      using OS X then you have a virtual desktop coordinate system which is
      dependent on the monitor positioning (so tracking the mouse pointer
      might be a good idea); I don't know what Windows does.
