Show window border

clamp [int]

Clamp matrix values

colormode [symbol]

Matrix color mode

Possible values:

'argb' ( Use ARGB color )
'uyvy' ( Use UYVY color. On windows requires noaccel 1 for matrix input )

depthbuffer [int]

Enable depth buffer

doublebuffer [int]

Enable back buffer

dstrect [4 ints]

The matrix destination rectangle is given by coordinates left, top, bottom, right. All values are relative to the top left corner of the window.

planemap [4 ints]

Maps input planes to output planes (default = 0 1 2 3 ...)

pos [2 ints]

shared [int]

Sets the window as a shared context.

size [2 ints]

Window size

srcrect [4 ints]

The portion of the input matrix used when copying an input matrix to the internal matrix. (default = 0 0 (matrix width) (matrix height)) The proportions of the rectangle are expressed in the form left, top, bottom, right. All values are relative to the top left corner of the viewing area of the input matrix.

stereo [int]

Enable stereo buffers

sync [int]

The vertical sync flag sets the window to update synchronous to the monitor's refresh.

title [symbol]

The window title. If not title is set, the title of the window will be set to the name of the window.

usesrcrect [int]

Enables source rectangle

visible [int]

Enable window visibility

'48'
'64'
'72'

hidden [int] (default: 0)

Toggles whether an object is hidden when the patcher is locked.

hint [symbol]

Sets the text that will be displayed in as a pop-up hint when the user moves the mouse over the object in a locked patcher.

ignoreclick [int] (default: 0)

Toggles whether an object ignores mouse clicks in a locked patcher.

patching_rect [4 floats] (default: 0. 0. 100. 0.)

Sets the position and size of the object in the patcher window.

position [2 floats]

g/s(set)

Sets the object's x and y position in both patching and presentation modes (if the object belongs to its patcher's presentation), leaving its size unchanged.

presentation [int] (default: 0)

Sets whether an object belongs to the patcher's presentation.

presentation_rect [4 floats] (default: 0. 0. 0. 0.)

Sets the x and y position and width and height of the object in the patcher's presentation, leaving its patching position unchanged.

rect [4 floats]

g/s(set)

Sets the x and y position and width and height of the object in both patching and presentation modes (if the object belongs to its patcher's presentation).

size [2 floats]

g/s(set)

Sets the object's width and height in both patching and presentation modes (if the object belongs to its patcher's presentation), leaving its position unchanged.

textcolor [float]
