I've built a patch which has the following functionality:
- Window without titlebar, menu, scroll, etc. Just a "square without any standard user interface element;
- The background color of the patcher window is 100% transparent (opacity 0);
- The window always stays on top through the "topmost 1" message, even when interacting with other applications (Max in background).
This is all working well.
In Windows, if I click inside the patcher window in a blank section (no Max elements), I can interact with the windows/applications beneath it (e.g, browser). Great!
In Mac OS X, when I do the same, the mouse clicks don't "pass through" to the other applications behind the window.
I post the patch as an attachment and would appreciate if you guys can confirm this problem.
By the way, the tested systems were:
Max 6.1.3 (32 bit) on Mac OS X 10.6.8 and Windows 7 Pro
I was really counting on this functionality for my application and initially built it in my windows computer. When I tried it on my MacBook Pro I came across this eventual problem.
Can anybody confirm this behavior? Btw, to close the patch just click on "wclose".
Thanks in advance!
