    I think you are referring to a momentary switch.
    Set the Latch property to true.

    hello Alan
    ok got that some thing strange happend can you remind me were to go and what to change on this probleme this is what i did

    first select input digital in switch then select fs input i then go and fs file /fs variables 4315 xml then fs variable and i select engine 1 fuel lever
    and it works ok

    i then open a new circuit and do the same steps for the engine1 start switch

    I do not recall ever having working with anyone on an engine start switch with fs2phidget5.
    Was the original post on this forum or a private email?
    If so, what date? so that I can go back and look thru my emails.

    The fuel lever and engine start switch do not work the same.
    One has two values, the other has three.
    You need to read and understand the FSUIPC offsets.
    Otherwise, I can see myself ending up giving you every keystroke to press for every one of your cockpit items.

    Re: fs phidgets button input qestion

    Make sure the key FS Variable properties are correct i.e. Offset, Length and Function.
    Should be DISCRETE for engine start.
    Which 2 of the 3 start switch positions were you attempting to control with the 2-position switch?
    Homework Assignment: Read FSUIPC documentation, Engine 1 Start Switch section only.
    Section is a single paragraph with 5 sentences.

    Spiro,
    Download 5.0.19 and install.
    You do not have to uninstall 5.0.18 (your choice).
    Let me know when you have installed.
    I will walk you thru setting up start switch.
    After we have done 2 or 3 functions, will be easier for you.
    Regards,
    Alan
