 you can do this with internal message "menuclose" to a canvas

my_patch_name menuclose(

Here is a method I've found yet to send internal messages through FUDI:


 In your patch create a [receive 3000] object with '3000' connected to an empty message box,
then you can fill the message box with the internal message and bang it. By this way it's possible
to create dynamically whatever you want in the patch, or simply close it.
