I’m looking to create a couple of different presentation view ‘areas’ in a patch, fix the window size, and then use a control in the patch (visible in all areas) to move between them. Basically, what offset msgs to [bpatcher] does. But I’d prefer not to issue the command from outside the patch *into* it as [bpatcher]; instead, have the control in the patch, itself. I couldn’t find any analogous commands in [thispatcher] or the list of msgs to Max. Can someone point me to it? Or am I really barking-up the wrong tree?
If it is not possible with the collection of thispatcher window messages or using the sendbox message – if that is even feasible or practical for your application then I can’t think of another obvious way (except scripting, Bpatcher – which you don’t want to use or perhaps ‘repurposing’ the Max help file tab system). If you are using Max 6, Check the ‘segmented’ tab in [tab] help for an example of ‘sendbox’.
