make a picture appear

Apr 23 2011 | 12:47 am

does anyone know how i could make a picture appear if say a bang is triggered?

like a tick for example…

many thanks

send a message that says "hidden 1" to make an item invisible, and "hidden 0" to make it visible.

Make sure the patcher window is locked.

yer it works now, how about an item that starts off invisible but through a togle coming on turns visible?

cheers for the help everyone

If you will work through the Max Tutorials, most of these types of questions will be answered for you. It really is the best way to get started with Max.

So you are saying you need a bang to turn on a toggle? I’m pretty sure the answer is in the question…

… you showed me how to make a picture disapear by turning a togle on-what i want to know is how to make that picture appear by turning the toggle on. loadmess 1 doesnt seem to be able to connect to anything, maybe you could send a patch if im being completely silly?

sorry for my noobness!

I can explain it, but I can’t be bothered.
