scrolling in a window?


    Jan 17 2008 | 11:26 am
    Hi,
    This seems like an obvious question but I can't find an answer - is it possible to scroll through a patcher (and jump around to different sections of it) by an object, or message? For example, if I have a long patch window where you can only see a portion of it, and then I want to scroll it to the right so you can see another portion of it.
    Cheers Evan

      As part of a UI you're construction or to improve programming experience. For the latter, you'll have to wait for the next version of max (with it's zooming options). For the first, a bpatcher and the ofsetmessage would work.

      If you want to auto-scroll the patch and it's not in a bpatcher, you can actually use a mini-javascript with
      function scroll_window(x,y) {
      this.patcher.wind.scrollto (x,y);
      }
      there may be syntax problems there, not sure. so from Max into the .js file, you'd send "scroll_window $1 $2" , with your X and Y anything you want. presets are good here. or a floating control window with the XY mouseable.
