Hey Jules -
I'm Just wondering about the state of things like fileChoosers and menus inside plugins. I am aware, of course, that modal dialogs are problematic in plugins.
However, I currently use both PopupMenus and file choosers in several VSTs, and have yet to see any real problems. Still, it might be that the hosts I'm using are fine, but it breaks in others .... not sure. Or maybe you have tweaked the code and they are not problems anymore?
Also - I assume that secondary windows inside plugins are fine (just that modal ones are not). So ... why not just have filechoosers and PopupMenus come up a full second, non-modal windows? This would be great for Android too, of course, since modal windows are no good there.
Anyway, just wondering. I realized a few weeks ago that I have a few modal dialogs in my plugs (that seem fine) ... but maybe I should switch them out, huh?
Also - wasn't there a flag for disabling modal loops altogether? If so, why not set that for plugins and disallow users from even trying modal dialogs?
