I am looking for a way to trigger computer keys through my Max Patch. In essence, I am running my patch in parallel with another program and would like to be able use the computer keyboard to type in a search word and hit return, controlled entirely by my max patch. The search will act be an automatic process as the characters will be triggered by routing information that has already been created.
The search will narrow down files from a wide range and I am then able to open them accordingly. Is there a simple way to do this?
Thanks a lot for your help,
