Window question


    Dec 03 2006 | 7:54 pm
    Hi everyone, I'm new to Max MSP, but I'm taking a class on it right now... so my question is: I am creating a user interface for my final project, and I found out how to remove the scroll bars and the top of the window (with window notitle and window exec), but now that that is removed, I has the small spot at the top of the screen where the title bar was, and I would like to then move the window up so it can fully cover the entire screen of the computer. I tried sending an [offset] message attached to a delay so after the top bar dissapered it would then recieve the message to move up, but it didn't work, so can you move the window after the title and scroll bars are removed? Any sugestions would be great. Here is an example file so you can see what I'm talking about:

      just like in the helpfile of [thispatcher], the fullscreen message followed by 0 or 1 is what you need :

      I found a problem with that... I didn't include this in my first example patch, but I also have a custom file menue... So when it goes full screen, I loose the File Edit Window Help... So I guess me question is how can I move/resize the window after the title bar is takien away? Thanks
