I'd like to ask if anybody knows if there's the possibility of redrawing the interface window in MaxMSP while performing. To become more specific, I want for example to see the waveform of a signal, so I have a waveform~ object in my patch. But at some time at the performance I don't need it anymore so by clicking on a toggle key or anything I stop it. Is there the possibility not only to stop displaying the waveform but to redraw the window so that the waveform~ object is not visible at all? In a general situation, what are the possibilities in switching between modes of view, hiding/revealing not only objects but even contained patches/subpatches?
Since I'm very new in MaxMSP and the manuals are a total of about 2000 pages, please if there is something relevant in the manuals tell me where it is and I'll read it. I searched but didn't find something to help me on this issue.
