Table to show items e.g. files


    Sep 20 2020 | 5:28 pm
    Hi, I saw the beginner tutorials and browsed the documentation but for some reason I can not find a list/overview of all user interface objects. I'm specifically looking for a table UI object that allows me list potentially hundreds of items e.g. files and in a perfect world I can high light items, make them clickable etc. I do have a developer background and could worst case code myself a UI widget like that in JS or Java but I'm looking for some starting point suggestions. Thanks community. Stay healthy. S

      For a while, our best solution was [umenu]. Now, you might manage most of what you want with [chooser]. Check the help file, second tab, for instance.

      Jean-Francois, Awesome - thank's for your help. That was what I was looking for. Why could not I find that in the documentation? :( Is there in general a list of UI objects somewhere?

      Logically, it should appear in the "Question Mark" tab in the [umenu] help file: these "question mark" often show you heuristically related objects. Unfortunately, c74 hasn't updated all of them recently. Now, I looked a little more in the reference: this page would be the one where the information is consolidated: type "Functional Listing Max Objects" in the Reference search field, then go to the Documentation tab. You'll see a "Max Objects Functional Listing" page. It's also accessible from Ref Home -> Left contents Max->Guides. And there is another one for MSP and Jitter. There are also UI objects in the Max for Live list of objects. !!!
