    Re: Gear up and down indicators

    Hi Alan!
    I guess I don't know that much all I know is that when you open Fs2Phidget4365 and go to fs var file on the drop down box and select FSVariables4364.ini and what you want it to do in the next drop down box the offset setting shows up in the next box.Hope this helps.
    Thanks Johnny G

    Re: Gear up and down indicators

    Johhny,

    Yes. you are assigning an FsVariable to a Phidget component.

    FSVariables are FSUIPC offsets. Every offset has an offset value and a length.
    FsVariables send and receive values to or from MS-FS via FSUIPC.
    Some FsVariable values are simple on/off.
    Some FsVariables, like the landing gear, have a value range,
    which represent the position of a landing gear, from fully retracted,
    to fully extended, and positions in between.
    The permitted values for a particular FsVariable can be observed in the FsVariable Manager.

    You can then configure an led to illuminate for a range of positions.
    e.g. you can specify that the Down led illuminates any time the gear is in between slightly extended to fully extended.
    You can observe FSVariable values in realtime using the FsVariable Manager or the main screen.
    Try extending and retracting landing gear and observing values.

    It might also be a good idea to get hold of the FSUIPC Offset documentation.
    This can be obtained from the latest FSUIPC SDK.
    Documentation is useful to check that an FSVariable has been set up correctly
    and for setting up FSVariables that might not be present in the ini file.

    Regards,
    Alan

    Re: Gear up and down indicators

    Hi Alan!
    OK I got some of this but need to know how to observe FSVariable values in realtime using the FsVariable Manager . I can see the values change in realtime on the main screen but how do I see them change on the FsVariable Manager?Where do I put in the values for specifying that the Down led illuminates any time the gear is in between slightly extended to fully extended. Where would this info go?

    If you can observe values on main screen, don't worry too much about FsVariable Manager for now.
