GNS Popup on click not working

Recommended Posts

I really enjoy the Mindstar GNS and it's been a great addition to P3D. I'm using v2.5 and have added the Mindstar 430 x 2 to the default P3D Alabeo Beech A36. Both GNS work in VS and both GNS work in popup on the 2D panel using Shift-1 and both units work as advertised, but shift-1 is the only way of opening the 2D panel. In the VC the cursor changes to the hand shape when hovering over the panel, but left/right click has no action. I would like to have the option to click on the VC screen to open the 2D panel, but it's not working.

Can anyone assist?

Panel settings:

 

[Window Titles]
Window00=GNS 430
Window01=Toggle_Manual
Window02=Toggle_Control
Window03=INFO
//--------------------------------------------------------

window_size= 0.320, 0.444
window_pos= 0.020, 0.505
zorder=1

gauge00=MPI_GNS!GNS430,  2,0,500,266, 1:3:11013
gauge01=MPI_GNS!GNS430,  3,266,500,266, 2:4:11013

The VC option works, the 2D option works, but the popup is elusive. Other Installed aircraft allow popup on click, but for some reason the A36 doesn't.

Thanks  for your help!!!!

Your panel.cfg entry looks incorrect. I need to see your entire panel.cfg.

So everyone understands... I don't do support in PMs. That's not appropriate as no one else would have the information available for searching.

 

You entered incorrect values for the gauge number in the 5th parameter. Gauge number is unique per GNS unit. So if you have 2 430's installed, it's not going to be 1,2,3,4 for the gauge numbers... it would be 1,2 and 1,2 instead.

 

If you're not grasping how this is laid out... think of it like this:

 

The first number is the physical installation number... as example from your panel.cfg, there are exactly two physical 430 units in your aircraft... so there would be two possible values of 1 and 2.

 

The second number is the gauge number... for each gauge entry in your panel.cfg for each physical unit this number is incremented.

 

The third number is simply a value that tells us what the window ident is for rendering purposes.

 

So... for your aircraft... the first two entries would be in the VC:

 

1:1:-1
2:1:-1
Then with the popup window you are defining two more gauges not GNS units so their parameters would be:

 

1:2:11013
2:2:11013
Here's your corrected panel.cfg:
