Subject: Managing windows creation


I'm currently doing an extern object which uses an extern window to
some 3DMF files.To create the window to display the file I use the
"wind_new" Max
function. Everything is fine, but I want to add the possibility of
full screen windowing.

In the Quicktime API there is a function , BeginFullScreen which allows
(and to terminate there is the EndFullScreen function). The call to this
function is

BeginFullScreen                                 (Ptr *
restoreState, GDHandle                          whichGD, short
*                               desiredWidth,
                                                                 short *
desiredHeight,WindowPtr *                       newWindow,RGBColor
*                               eraseColor,

You pass a pointer to a window pointer in the newWindow field, and the
function returns
a WindowPtr for a window that covers the screen, then you do the stuff in
that GrafPort.

How is it possible once you get this window to match it to a Max
t_wind* structure,
and then use the  object_update(s_objectPtr x) Max function which
correspond to an
"update" message?
