Hotkey for Panel Window?

Recommended Posts

I have forgotten how to set up a hotkey in the panel.cfg file for a particular window. Mainly it is needed for a window number beyond 9.

Appreciate it if someone will jolt this old brain with the entry required.

Regards to all

Hello

If you have a registered Fsuipc it is easy.

 

Locate the panel ID number of the window you want to use from the Panel Cfg:

 

[Window17]

BACKGROUND_COLOR=0,0,0

size_mm=385,600

window_size= 0.20052, 0.50000

position=2

visible=0

ident=420

zorder=99

 

In Fsuipc Keypress section enter your key combination you want to use and from the (controls sent when keys pressed) drop down, choose the panel ID toggle command panelID toggle command

 

Enter the panel ID 420 in the parameter box

 

The same method would be used on the Fsuipc buttons page to program a yoke/joystick button

Thank you mad dog.

I do have a registered fsuip and will use it as you instructed. I seem to recall there was another way which involved a line in the .cfg file...something like hotkey<x>=---.

I like your way better though
