Bring a (new) tab to front

Jul 20 2012 | 8:26 am


I am really enjoying the Max 6 tab option – the one from the help files (especially when holding a doublebass in my left hand and clicking on a tab with the right hand).

Is there a way to bring a tab to front without clicking with the mouse on it?
The message [front] to a this patcher in one of the subpatchers brings it to front, but out of the tab system…

With the tab object, the message [symbol tabname] will bring the tab named ‘tabname’ to the front. Not quite sure if this answers your question though…

Thanks. No, this message doesn’t work since there is no tab object.
I guess I would better learn some javascript and modify the [js helpstarter.js] file..
