    Salaam allaykam,
    You need to obtain the offset, length and type from iFly documentation.
    You create an FSVariable using the FsVariable Manager (button is on FS2Phidget main screen).
    You assign the FsVariable to a TectLCD Line. The Help explains how to do this.
    Regards,
    Alan

    Salam Alan , thanks for your reply, this what i found for IRS ifly737 offset: "66C0 length 20 (string)".
    So the steps are as follow:
    - Create FsVariable ex "ifly_irs
    - Assign the offset: 66C0
    - Assign the size: 20
    - FsVariable Type: ?????
    So please if you can give me more explainations

    PS: the help window don't work

    Best regards Ryadh

    How did you install software?
    If you installed from this web site help should work.

    You most probably need latest version from this web site.
    I cannot locate Download section, so cannot help you locate it.
    Every time I turn around the web site has changed or there is access issue.
    Regards,
    Alan
