TXT LCD...Positioning Txt?
Alan, is there a way to position the text on the TXT LCD?
i.e. I would like to use the TXT LCD's on my FCU.
First line, I would like to have the Vertical Speed, aligned to the right.
Second line, Altitude, aligned to the left.
I hope there is a simple solution

This is definitely on the way in near future.
I plan on using TextLCD for electrical panel on my overhead.
Coming soon to a screen near you!

Ditto for me Alan, i got mine to use for the power panel display.

I can think of all sorts of cool things to use it for
I will look forward to the opportunity of using it that way....
Thank you Alan.

Version 2.0.6 will now allow you to specify a column for TextLCD.
Here's what you do:
- If you do nothing, then, by default, text will be displayed in column 1.
- Go into ini file for TextLCD card.
- Add line as in following example
(watch spelling - settings are case sensitive):
Column=12 <-----------------Column to start displaying text.
<-----------------Column not specified - will default to 1.
If you inadvertantly specify a starting column greater than the total number of columns supported by your card, fs2phidget will set start column to 1 less than total number of columns. i.e. you would then see only one character on the extreme right.

After that fantastic surprise this AM, I'm afraid to ask for anything else.....
I just ran into this... (no, I didn't get hurt ) PM FCU Altitude-Read is 3 digits, i.e. 160 for 16000
So, for FSType: is there multiplying capability, so I can multiply the 160*10?

You could set format to
in FSUIPC ini file.

Unfortunately it didn't work.... I get 00160 now.

Cut and paste your PM FCU Altitude settings in your INI file.
Want to see what FStype you're using.
I am think of trying
Dividing by 0.1 is equivalent to multiplying by 10.
