This script creates 2 Bars, one at the bottom, one at the right. Clicking a bar toggles the visibility of the UIPanels next to it in default config. Rightclick closes a bar.

I shall look into the 2012er compatibility and main tool bar as soon as I'm done with the Mixer and Copy/Link2Vert rewrites :)

a little late, but what the hell

i edited your script a little and got it to work under 2012.. no pretty bars to click, but if you set it up in your Quads it's definitely useable.

here's the hackjob for anybody interested:

macroScript toggleLowerPanels
category:"MyScripts"
toolTip:"Toggle Time-, Status-, and Trackbar"
buttonText:"Toggle Lower Panels"
(
local allToggled

if (trackbar.visible == true or StatusPanel.visible == true or timeSlider.isVisible()) then
(
allToggled = false
)

if (allToggled == false) then
(
local val = timeSlider.isVisible()
timeSlider.setVisible(false)
StatusPanel.visible = false
trackbar.visible = false
allToggled = true
)
else
(
timeSlider.setVisible(true)
StatusPanel.visible = true
trackbar.visible = true
allToggled = false
)
)

Doesn't work in Maxs Design 2010 64bit

Only get a very wide panel to toggle command panel and no or a very thin panel which doesn't toggel the timeline.

Neat idea if it can be made to work as described!

oh and forgot to mention earlier ..

.. the right click / close function does not work either.

no change unfortunately

and the listener is as silent as ever. i'm using a 64bit version of 2012, as far as that might help. i've tried digging up possible changes in the API, but haven't been all that successful - i have next to no knowledge of maxscript..

awesome..

.. i miss this little script more than i would have thought ;-)

the toggle commands themselves seem to work fine, at least they do when i apply them separately - the codeblocks that follow might need some work, or maybe something needs to be checked/unchecked in preferences.. dunno ;/
