    Keyboard Shortcuts IAS, Course and Vertical Speed

    I'm looking to find out if there is a way to set keyboard shortcuts for changing IAS, Vertical Speed and Course? If there is a command using standard.xml, I can't seem to figure it out.

    Thanks

    Hi Jim, the list was exactly what I was missing! Thank You! This addresses both Airspeed and Vertical Speed. I have no idea why my hours of searching turned up nothing... All I can think of is that I was searching based on the first 737-800 MCP function which is Back Course. Even this list doesn't seem to help much in this category, but then again, I could simply be missing something.

    While I see things like

    Code:
    KEY_AP_SPD_VAR_INC 	AP_SPD_VAR_INC 	Increments airspeed hold reference 	Shared Cockpit
    KEY_AP_SPD_VAR_DEC 	AP_SPD_VAR_DEC 	Decrements airspeed hold reference 	Shared Cockpit
    KEY_AP_AIRSPEED_HOLD 	AP_AIRSPEED_HOLD 	Toggles airspeed hold mode 	Shared Cockpit
    KEY_AP_AIRSPEED_ON 	AP_AIRSPEED_ON 	Turns airspeed hold on 	Shared Cockpit
    KEY_AP_AIRSPEED_OFF 	AP_AIRSPEED_OFF 	Turns airspeed hold off 	Shared Cockpit
    KEY_AP_AIRSPEED_SET 	AP_AIRSPEED_SET 	Sets airspeed hold on/off (1,0) 	Shared Cockpit
    KEY_AP_PANEL_SPEED_ON 	AP_PANEL_SPEED_ON 	Turns on speed hold mode 	Shared Cockpit
    KEY_AP_PANEL_SPEED_OFF 	AP_PANEL_SPEED_OFF 	Turns off speed hold mode 	Shared Cockpit
    KEY_AP_PANEL_SPEED_SET 	AP_PANEL_SPEED_SET 	Set speed hold mode on/off (1,0) 	Shared Cockpit
    KEY_AUTOPILOT_AIRSPEED_HOLD_CURRENT 	AP_PANEL_SPEED_HOLD_TOGGLE 	Turns airspeed hold mode on with current airspeed 	Shared Cockpit
    etc....
    all I see for Back Course is the following with no way to either "bug select" or increment/decrement the value.

    Code:
    KEY_AP_BC_HOLD_ON 	AP_BC_HOLD_ON   	Turns localizer back course hold mode on/armed 	Shared Cockpit
    KEY_AP_BC_HOLD_OFF 	AP_BC_HOLD_OFF 	Turns off backcourse mode for localizer hold 	        Shared Cockpit
    KEY_AP_BC_HOLD 	AP_BC_HOLD 	Toggles the backcourse mode for the localizer hold 	Shared Cockpit

    Re: Keyboard Shortcuts IAS, Course and Vertical Speed

    Krusty ,, thinking about this ,, I think most of what you want is available thru the normal FS/options/settings menu.
    Some time ago, while experimenting with Arduino's I done an autopilot and although I never done all the mode buttons, I didn't from memory play with the standard.xml.

    The "course" bug is in there as "OBS indicator" as Shift+V (then + or - to move)
    The "heading" bug as Ctrl+shift+H (then + or - to move) (There are also separate commands available for "up" and "down")

    Hope that helps ,, Jim
