Popup window from a max external

November 19, 2013 | 7:38 am

Hi all,

I’d like to know if there’s a way to popup a very simple window (basically an image that stays a few seconds then disappear) from a max external, using only max’s SDK (I mean without JUCE or native libraries from Mac and Windows). Any clues?

Hi Nicolas,

thanks a lot for the tips and for nice the piece of code! I don’t have time right now to test it, but I understand the idea. Ideally I’d like however, not to call an external max patch, but to imbed all elements of the splash screen (mainly the image) in the external itself, in Windows and Mac. Any hope without JUCE?

The splash screen that is displayed in zsa.descrptiors used to be a transparent patcher (with notitle flag set), with a fpic and a transparent png.
