Clickspot gauge for popup A320 PFD

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

I've added a popup window for the PFD in the Aerosoft airbus, since it didn't come out of the box had to add one by editing the panel.

However it's only accessible by using Shift+4.

 

But I'd like to be able to click on the VC and have it popup like it works in the NGX, Q400 or any other aircraft out of the box.

 

I had a clickspot gauge somewhere in the past for captainsim weather radar in the J41 so I know it's possible, but I don't have that anymore.

 

Does anyone know where I can download one that I can use?

 

Many thanks

Hi DanW,

 

"I've added a popup window for the PFD in the Aerosoft airbus, since it didn't come out of the box had to add one by editing the panel.

So you can open the PFD, ND, ... in an external Window??

 

Thanks in advance

We just had this question over at Flightsim.com.   If you don't mind reading through the thread,

 

there is a good explanation about how to edit the XML of your gauge to make it pop up

 

from the VC like you want.

Yeh that seems to be perfekt...

 

But actuell right now I`m sure how to do this with aerosofts airbuses :(

Where to find that panel connfig ?

could you please help me?

 

Thank you sooo much,

The panel.cfg should be in the panel folder for any aircraft be it Boeing or Airbus.

Is that right (Window3)?
And how to open the Window?

Did you try Shift+4 to make the window popup?

Try changing the 2 numbers in bold black to be the same as size_mm=

You can try different sizes to see if it helps.

I`ll test that THANK YOU :)

 

Is it also possible to du that with the engine controll display and the one belows that?
