April Fool's INIT: Scrolling the Menu Bar!?

By Mike Scanlin, San Diego, CA

Note: Source code files accompanying article are located on MacTech CD-ROM or source code disks.

Probably everyone who reads this magazine knows at least one person who owns a Mac that they’d like to play a joke on. This INIT resource might be just the thing you’re looking for. It is a patch to _GetNextEvent that will scroll the menu bar off the right side of the screen (leaving the menu bar blank) when the mouse is clicked in the very top pixel of the menu bar with an odd horizontal position. It does nothing if the mouse is clicked anywhere else on the screen, so it is possible to use the menus when this patch is installed, just so long as you don’t click in the very top pixel at an odd position. The menus will come back eventually (after a few sarcastic messages are displayed in the empty menu bar), so this is a pretty harmless patch (although extremely annoying according to my guinea pig roommate). Command key equivalents for current menus (like COMMAND-Q) will work even though no menus are shown. It is possible to remove the patch once it is installed by typing COMMAND-SHIFT-OPTION-TAB. The patch will beep to let you know it has been removed.

HOW IT WORKS

This patch to _GetNextEvent is an application of the technique I used in the Shift Mod patch (September 1987 issue of MacTutor). It is a tail patch on _GetNextEvent that looks at the event being returned and intercepts it if it is a mouseDown event with a vertical position of zero and an odd horizontal position. When it finds such an event the menu bar is scrolled off the screen and then _DrawMenuBar and _HiliteMenu are patched to do nothing. The reason those two traps are patched is because we don’t want anything drawn in the menu bar while we’re displaying our messages. The menu bar is restored by restoring those two traps and then calling _DrawMenuBar. Note that because we are patching _DrawMenuBar the user will not be able to get the menus back by quitting the current application and/or launching another application (because every application uses _DrawMenuBar to put their menus up).

Once we have scrolled the menus off, the patch to _GetNextEvent will intercept any mouseDown event anywhere in the menu bar area and display a message in the menu bar for 1 second or until the mouse button is let go, which ever is longer. After four such messages, the patches to _DrawMenuBar and _HiliteMenuBar are removed and _DrawMenuBar is called to draw the current menu bar (which may not necessarily be the one that was scrolled off since the user could have changed applications in the mean time).

To do the actual scrolling you would expect me to use _ScrollRect. That’s what I tried at first, but it was too slow (took about 10 seconds for the menu bar to get all the way off the screen). Then I tried scrolling by 3 or 4 pixels at a time, but it wasn’t smooth enough. The version you see here is scrolling by rotating bits in screen memory (via the 68000’s roxr instruction). Although somewhat unorthodox (Apple wouldn’t approve) it now only takes about 2 seconds to smoothly scroll the menu bar all the way off the screen.

PROBLEM

There is a potential problem with this patch. There is a danger in patching and unpatching traps that may be patched by other applications. For applications that patch traps this isn’t normally a problem because they get a chance to restore the traps when they quit (before something else can patch them). But it is possible for our patches to be unpatched at a bad time. A “bad time” to unpatch would be after something else has patched on top of one of our patches. For instance, if we patch _GetNextEvent and then some other program patches it and then we unpatch ours, the second patch will be unpatched along with ours, but the application that made the second patch won’t know about it. To partially correct this from happening, I have the removePatch routine check if something has patched _GetNextEvent after we have patched it (by calling _GetTrapAddress and comparing it to ourself) and if it has, then ignore the request to unpatch ourself. I did not do this for _DrawMenuBar and _HiliteMenu, but it is unlikely that other applications would patch either of those two (besides, this is only a joke -- it’s not something you’re going to leave around in your System Folder forever).

One additional problem is that while this patch should work on any size monochrome monitor, it will not work on a Mac II color monitor. If anyone comes up with a simple fix, please send it in.
