You're the greatest, Alex! If it works, this will fix a long standing bug in
Context, and you'll be a hero.
If you're making a new object, you might want to consider that the Cyclone
object reports 0 ("inactive") whenever you right click on the patch. I don't
know if this is a bug, but it would seem more desirable to me if the object
ignored right clicks and only reported whether or not the window is active.
I don't understand this. With [cyclone/active], right clicking on an active
patch doesn't report 0 for me... if it does for you, then it's a bug I guess,
please open an issue for cyclone and we'll look into that.
Now, if you mean that if you right click on a patch window that isn't active,
is not that it reports "0", it doesn't report anything, because doing that does
not make that patch window active. But then this is Pd's business, that's how
it rolls, so I don't see how to deal with that unless pd handles it itself.
Anyway, I got a new object in else: [window] (it's already up in else's
repository). It seems to do what both of you want. I'll schedule a new release
soon, immediately after we release a cyclone update next week.
